Police are investigating whether someone now deployed abroad on active military duty may have been responsible for shooting an arrow through an elderly Burbank couple’s home two weeks ago.

The couple found a 2 1/2-foot-long arrow lodged in their bedroom wall on Jan. 28 after it pierced  a fiberglass panel separating the adjacent property before busting a 3-inch hole in a window.

“There has been extensive investigation and interviews of people who were present at the time,” said Capt. Denis Cremins, head of the Burbank Police Department’s Investigation Division. “They’ve talked about somebody who may have done it who may have been activated in the U.S. military and may be out of the country right now.”
