    A Bronx man has been charged with attempted assault against two Connecticut police officers who tried to stop him after a home invasion and robbery.

    Edward Blancaneaux was arrested Saturday night after Waterbury police say he tried to strike two approaching officers with his car.

    An injured officer was treated and released from a hospital.

    Corbett said the second officer fired at the car, but missed the driver.

    Octavious Williams of Waterbury also was arrested. Police say he was involved in the home invasion and armed robbery.

    The 38-year-old Blancaneaux and Williams were each held on $750,000 bond and are to be arraigned in Waterbury Superior Court Monday.

    Both are charged with home invasion, robbery and other charges.

    It was not known Monday if they are represented by lawyers.
