Victims of Madison home invasion thank community for support

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- The victims of a violent home invasion in Madison are responding to the community that's shown its support in the past few weeks.

The Madison Police Department says the couple who was brutally attacked when their home was broken into in late February wants the community to know they and their baby are doing as well as can be expected.

Police arrested six people in connection to the break-in that happened early in the morning while the victims were sleeping. Three men are accused of beating the husband and sexually assaulting his pregnant wife.

The couple tells police they sincerely appreciate the kindness extended to them by many in the community and say it has been healing to hear supportive and compassionate sentiments.

Some community members have reached out to 27 News to see if they can help the couple. The victims say they are not requesting any monetary contributions, but if you'd like to write a letter of support you can send it to:

Friends of Quincy Ave
c/o Luther Memorial Church
1021 University Ave
Madison, WI 53715
