A Frederick, Md., man has been arrested and charged after an armed home invasion in east Hagerstown early Friday morning, the Hagerstown Police Department said.
Terrance Warfield, 29, of Eisenhower Drive faces charges of armed robbery, assault, burglary, reckless endangerment and theft, Sgt. John Lehman said in a news release.
Warfield was being held at the Washington County Detention Center on $300,000 bond, a jail spokesman said Friday afternoon.
Shortly after 6 a.m., police were called to a home in the 1500 block of Violet Drive for an armed home invasion robbery.
An adult male resident and two young children were asleep inside the home when Warfield allegedly entered through the back door, Lehman said.
Barking dogs inside the home awakened the male resident. Warfield then confronted the resident and one of the children, and demanded money, police said.
Warfield was believed to be carrying a handgun, Lehman said.
The male resident was able to fight the intruder off, but Warfield got away with an undisclosed amount of cash and property, Lehman said.
The male resident suffered minor injuries, but did not require medical attention, police said. Neither of the children was hurt.
Detectives learned that Warfield and the male resident were “familiar” with each other, Lehman said.
