Norwich — Police arrested two Norwich men Thursday afternoon in connection with a home invasion that occurred on Aug. 16 at a residence on Franklin Street.

James E. Alston, 31, of 96 River Ave., and John R. Factura, 23, of 187 Talman St., were each charged with home invasion, first-degree robbery and third-degree larceny.

Alston and Factura are each being held on a $250,000 bond, pending their arraignment today in Norwich Superior Court.

Police said that further arrests are anticipated.
