Police are searching for a man who allegedly broke into a Melrose home and injured a 19-year-old woman with a knife early Wednesday morning, the Melrose Police Department said.
The woman was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital with a cut to her neck, police said.
Police responded to a call of a home invasion around 2:50 a.m. on Lynde Street, police said.
The woman was cut during a confrontation with the man inside the home after he demanded items from her, police said.
The man is also suspected of breaking into other homes and stealing two cars overnight Tuesday, one of which had a keyless start key fob left inside the car, police said.
Each incident is still under investigation by Melrose police.
