Bristol police have arrested and charged the armed suspect involved with an assault inside a Lake Avenue home on Monday afternoon.

According to a press release from the Bristol Police Department, Ryan Nash of New Britain was charged with first degree burglary, second degree assault and second degree breach of peace. Armed with a cutting-type instrument, the suspect forced his way into the residence at 482 Lake Avenue where he attacked two victims that he knew, the release said.
