by MCS Staff

On February 14, at approximately 9:59 am, Takoma Park Police responded to the unit block of Philadelphia Avenue for the report of an armed home invasion robbery. According to police, the victim was sitting in her kitchen when a male suspect dressed all in black clothing and a full mask covering his face walked in and placed an object to the back of her neck and demanded property (victim believed it to be a gun or a taser).  The victim complied.  After taking property, the suspect had her walk into a closet in the back bedroom while he continued to rummage through her purse.

The suspect fled the residence with property and the victim’s car keys, however, he was unable to take her vehicle because there was a vehicle blocking it.  The suspect fled on foot running towards Carroll Avenue from Park Avenue. A lookout was provided to all surrounding jurisdictions.  A K9 track with the assistance of Montgomery County Police yielded negative results.  A neighborhood canvass was conducted that yielded more witnesses.

The suspect is described as a Black male, approximately 5’11 and 180 lbs., 20’s, last seen wearing all dark clothing, a mask covering his entire face and carrying a backpack. Investigation continues under case #230007462.
