Two men rob Hagerstown family in home invasion

November 29, 2006|by KAREN HANNA

Two males, including one holding a gun, entered a Hagerstown home occupied by a family of four during a reported home-invasion robbery Tuesday night.

Hagerstown Police Department Sgt. Paul Kifer said a fairly tall man with a muscular build and a shorter, stockier man wearing a mask and holding a gun entered a house in the 1200 block of Potomac Avenue at about 7:15 p.m.

A man at the house called police, and the two men involved in the robbery fled on foot, Kifer said. Beside the man who called police, a woman and two small children were in the house, Kifer said.

No one was hurt, he said.

Kifer said police still were determining whether the tall man who entered the house was acting willingly, or was forced to participate by the man holding the gun. Kifer said the gun was believed to be a shotgun.


Police had not identified any suspects by late Tuesday night, Kifer said.

The taller man was about 30 years old, Kifer said.

Kifer declined to say what the men did while they were in the house, and he said police still were investigating why the house might have been targeted.
