Home Invasion in Edgewood MD
(Edgewood, MD – January 18, 2010,) On Sunday, January 17, 2010 at approximately 10pm, a home invasion occurred, in the 1900 block of Edgewater Drive, Edgewood MD, after a guest in the apartment opened the door to two males who entered the home and robbed the four women in the apartment. The victims of the incident include the resident, a 63-year-old woman and three elderly females between the ages of 62 and 95 years old that were visiting for the evening.
The two suspects knocked on the door, stating it was “Junior”. Since the victims have a friend with the same name, they opened the door. The first suspect is described as a light complexion black male, with a baby face wearing a dark colored hooded sweatshirt and jeans, somewhere between the age of 17- 22. The second suspect, also between the age of 17-22, is described a darker complexion black male with a thin build, wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt covering his face with a beige/tan bandana. The first suspect entered the residence and proceeded to the resident’s bedroom where he brandished a gun and demanded any pain medication and valuables that she may have. The second suspect stayed in the living room watching over the guests until both suspects fled the apartment in an unknown direction. Stolen from the group of women were purses, cash, bankcards, a cell phone, various medications and personal identification. The investigation is ongoing.
Anyone with information regarding this crime is encouraged to contact Detective Pete Georgiades of the Harford County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division at 410-836-5431.
