Rockland police have an arrest warrant for a 25-year-old Waldoboro man who they said broke into an elderly woman’s home in January and held the woman against her will while stealing money.

The warrant is for Joshua Ellis, according to Rockland Police Detective Sgt. Christopher Young. The warrant charges Ellis with Class A robbery, Class B burglary, Class C criminal restraint, Class C theft, Class D criminal mischief and Class D obstructing the report of a crime.

The incident occurred Jan. 20 at the woman’s Dunton Avenue home in Rockland.

There are two other suspects but there are no arrest warrants yet for those suspects, Young said.

Police said at the time of the incident that┬áthree young white males wearing masks broke into the woman’s house while she was home. They allegedly ordered her not to use the telephone while they went through the house.

The home invasion was cut short, however, because when the men entered the home, they allowed the resident’s dog to get loose. A neighbor saw the dog on the street and caught the canine and was returning the pet to the woman when the three men burst out of the house. The trio fled on foot.

The men were not armed and the woman was not injured, according to police. They allegedly stole a large amount of coins.

Ellis has a lengthy criminal record, Young said.
