June 17, 2009

INWOOD, W.Va. -- A woman was tied up in her home early Tuesday in the second home invasion reported in the Inwood area in as many days, the Berkeley County Sheriff's Department said in a news release.

The woman said several people entered her home and demanded that she turn over her prescription medicine, the release said.

She was tied up and left in her home, but was able to free herself and call for help.

The incident remains under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact the sheriff's office at 304-267-7000 or Berkeley County Crime Solvers at 304-267-4999.

On Monday morning, an Inwood man was wounded in a home invasion, the Berkeley County Sheriff's Department said.

Two adults in a Patricks Court home in Inwood were awakened when their front door was forced open, Lt. Gary Harmison said. They encountered two men, believed to be white men dressed in black wearing ski masks, in the living room.

When the male resident tried to close a bedroom door, a shot was fired through the door, striking him, Harmison said. He was treated at Winchester (Va.) Hospital for nonlife-threatening injuries.

The two men fled the scene in an unknown direction in a pickup truck, Harmison said.
