A man from Walden has been taken into custody and is currently being held at the Columbia County Jail. This is after he was involved in a brutal home invasion in Hudson, New York, just last month.
According to the Hudson police department, Matthew McNamara, 31 years old and from Walden, unlawfully entered the residence of a family he had no connection to. This incident occurred on September 30th at the Hudson Terrace Apartments in Hudson, New York.
According to authorities, the victim’s 14-year-old son used a baseball bat to defend his mother.
According to reports, law enforcement officials were notified of a disturbance near 15 South Front St. through a 911 call. Upon arrival at the scene, they found a fearful family and a wounded suspect.
According to reports, McNamara was aboard an Amtrak train just 45 minutes before the home invasion took place. The Amtrak police removed McNamara from the train, but the reasons for his removal remain unspecified.
After being hit with a baseball bat during the altercation, McNamara was immediately taken to the hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. Following his medical evaluation, he was arrested for involvement in the incident.
According to reports, he has been accused of burglary, assault, criminal mischief, and endangering the welfare of a child. He is in custody and must pay $5,000 cash bail, $20,000 bond, and a $20,000 partially secured bond.
