EPPING, NH – A Framingham man was charged with armed robbery and burglary, following a violent, armed home invasion in New Hampshire Wednesday, Oct. 19.
Residents on Lamprey Village Drive were asked to shelter in place following a home invasion in that Epping, New Hampshire neighborhood.
Arrested were Raul Natareno, 23, of Framingham, Travis Garand, 18, of Epping, N.H., and Bengamin Rouser, 18, of Marlborough.

Garand faces three charges of criminal liability.
The homeowner said one of the suspects hit him in the head with a gun.
Czubaruk said three men came to his home to rob him. One of them was not a stranger.
“Someone I once knew from back in school came to my house, asking to hang out and I told him I didn’t want to hang out, and he asked me if my dog bit, and then, like, came into my home, pleading to hang out with me,” Czubaruk told the television station. “I did not want to hang out with him. He left, and then about a minute later, two gentlemen came in my house with a firearm and strong-held me, attacked me, and (started) looking for anything to take.”
Epping police said an officer on patrol in the neighborhood noticed a suspicious car on the block, went into Czubaruk ’s home, and caught two of the men around 1 p.m.
The third suspect fled.
He was later found hiding near a rock wall behind a shed in the neighborhood around 4 p.m. yesterday.
