A Hudson Valley couple was arrested after police investigated a home invasion in Dutchess County.

On Monday, New York State Police from the Poughkeepsie barracks arrested Michael J. Farrell, 25, of Accord and 20-year-old Julia M. Forbes of Rhinebeck for burglary and conspiracy, both felonies. Farrell was also charged with felony criminal possession of a weapon.

On Sunday, troopers responded to a home on Route 44 in the town of Pleasant Valley for a burglary in progress. Victims at the scene said a man forced his way into their residence and used a knife to threaten physical violence prior to fleeing.

According to police, Forbes and Farrell conspired to break into the victim’s residence and then used a knife to menace the victims. Authorities didn't go into details about how their investigation led them to allege the couple is responsible for the home invasion.

Forbes was remanded to the Dutchess County Jail in lieu of $50,000 cash bail or $100,000 secure bond. Farrell was remanded to the Dutchess County Jail in lieu of $100,000 cash bail or $200,000 secure bond.
