MADISON, Wis. — Madison police say six people have been arrested in connection with a violent home invasion in which a pregnant woman was repeatedly sexually assaulted.

Police released details Monday about the incident that happened Feb. 23.

Authorities say several armed robbers forced their way into the home of a Madison couple at 4 a.m., demanded money and assaulted them for 40 to 50 minutes.

Several suspects sexually assaulted the woman, who was six months pregnant.

The residents walked to a local business to call 911 after the ordeal. They were hospitalized for their injuries.

The suspects range in age from 20 to 23.
