    Family Held at Gunpoint in Maine Home Invasion, Sexual Assault
    Maine State Police

    Four men have been arrested after holding a family of five at gunpoint and sexually assaulting one of them in Lyman, Maine, last week.

    Maine State Police said the four men entered the Mast Road home on Jan. 15 and held the occupants at gunpoint as they ransacked the house. Stolen were two shotguns and a rifle, several hundred dollars in cash, medical marijuana, four cell phones and two laptop computers.

    Xavier Watson, 22, of Brentwood, New Hampshire, Andre Thomas, 20, of Lawrence, Massachusetts, Reynan Mora, 23, of Lowell, Massachusetts, and Vincent Casazza, 19, of Newmarket, New Hampshire, were arrested in New Hampshire and Massachusetts over the past two days. Maine State Police had been working with the U.S. Marshal's Service and Nashua and Lowell police in recent days to locate and arrest the men.

    All four suspects will face charges of burglary, robbery and theft of a firearm once they appear in court and are extradited to Maine. Watson will also be charged with aggravated assault and unlawful sexual contact.
