Two armed home invasions in Madison Wednesday night are believed to be connected and related to drugs, police said.

Madison police said a man who currently is in prison on drug charges has connections to both of the addresses where the home invasions took place.

Police were called to the 4900 block of Paul Avenue at about 10:40 p.m. by a man who made the call after hearing a window shatter upstairs.

"Two masked men broke into the residence and one put a gun to the victim's head, asking 'Where's the stuff?,'" said police spokesman Joel DeSpain.

The two armed men learned the victim had already called police, so they fled without taking anything.

Two women were at the residence at the time of the home invasion, and they told police they were taken to the Paul Avenue address against their will, from an apartment in the 2800 block of Dryden Drive, where the initial home invasion took place.

"The two women said the gunmen in the Dryden Drive home invasion also wanted to know where the stuff was at," DeSpain said.

No description of the two suspects was given.
