At 11:00pm on Friday July 6th the Tyngsborough Police Department received a 911 call from 4 Rock Road reporting a possible home invasion and assault that had just occurred.  A subsequent investigation by officers revealed that five females had entered the residence without permission of the home owner.  Once inside the residence one of the females physically assaulted a female victim who was in her bedroom.  According to the victim and witnesses, the victim was struck with a phone and was physically attacked by the assailant.  The investigation revealed that the suspect stated that she was there to collect $100 that she claimed was owed to her by the victim.  The five females then left the residence.

A short time later Dracut Police located the suspect at her residence in Dracut, she was identified as Caitlin Sayer, 21 years old of Dracut.  She was arrested and transported back to the Tyngsborough Police Department where she was booked and charged with Armed Burglary.
