Two men sought in Hagerstown home invasion robbery

July 04, 2013

Hagerstown Police were investigating a home invasion early Thursday in which two assailants allegedly tied up two victims and stole cash.

Officers were called to the 600 block of Forest Drive in the northern part of the city at about 1:16 a.m. Thursday.

One of the suspects fired a handgun during the robbery, which occurred after two men wearing masks and gloves entered the home, police said in a news release.

The gun was fired inside the house and the round was recovered from a wall, according to Sgt. John Lehman of the Criminal Investigation Division.

No one was injured, police said.

Police used dogs to track the suspects’ movements. The dogs led authorities to Prospect Avenue, Oak Hill Avenue, Maple Avenue and North Potomac Street.

The route ended in the parking lot of Sheetz on Potomac Avenue, police said.

Police described the suspects as:

• A black man in his 20s with a medium build and braided hair. He was believed to be between 5 feet 11 inches and 6 feet 2 inches tall. He was wearing dark pants and a dark shirt.

• A black man between 18 and 20 years old with a thin build and braided hair. He is believed to be about 5 feet 8 inches tall. He was wearing a white shirt and dark pants.

The Western Maryland Regional Crime Lab is processing evidence, including the round fired from the handgun, police said.

Anyone with information about the case can contact police at 301-790-3700, ext. 234, or by email at crimetip@hagerstownpd.org.
