Darien home invasion suspect appears in court

A man suspected in a Darien home invasion went before a judge this afternoon.

Police say Zachary Hession broke into a home on Allen O'Neil Drive late Saturday night and fought with the man inside.

Police say Hession knew his victim and may have been looking for prescription medication.

At his arraignment today, Hession's attorney told the judge that the 21-year-old has a substance abuse problem.

Hession is charged with home invasion, robbery and burglary.
