The standoff came after investigators said that the two suspects led them on a chase through Hamden into the Elm City.
Police officers were called to a home on Emerson Street after masked men were seen entering the house at 10:40 a.m.
The cops knew that the first floor was vacant, and no one was at home on the second floor and there was a family on the third floor, who were told by police to lock their doors and stay put.
According to police, Kwame Wells-Jordan, 20, of Hamden and Norman Boone, 23, of New Haven were hiding in the stairwell of the home.
Police hostage negotiators threatened to unleash the canine units as the suspects were not coming out of the house, but the dogs weren’t available, CBS affiliate WFSB reported.
So they had officers bark like dogs, which worked, as in a little while, the two men walked outside and were arrested on the spot.
