West Hartford Police said an investigation into a Thursday morning incident on Hillcrest Avenue is still very active, but noted that there is no threat to the public.

Sgt. Amanda Martin was not able to specify the nature of the incident, which occurred at approximately 8:30 a.m., but said that it appears to be isolated and there were no injuries.

At 4:30 p.m., Martin said the incident “was not a home invasion.”

The following was posted on the Twitter account @BreakingNowCT just after 10:30 a.m. Thursday. While Martin said Thursday afternoon that it was not a home invasion, no further details were provided.

  • The West Hartford Police Department should do some work on its communication skills. An “incident” occurs at 8:30 am on Hillcrest Avenue. The police do not describe the incident but tell the community not too worry. Then we have a 10:30 twitter report that the “incident” was a home invasion. Then at 4:30 the police report that there was no home invasion. Respectfully, the citizens of this town are entitled to know what happened and whether the police believe that there is any risk to the community from the undesired “incident.” This is not rocket science.
