News from the Captain

The Baltimore County Police Department is investigating two home invasions in the Milbrook Park apartment complex.
The first home invasion occurred just before 2:30 p.m. on April 2, when the suspect followed the victim into his apartment in the 6900 block of Brookmill Road, 21215. The suspect demanded money, implied he was armed and stated he would start shooting everyone if he didn't get it. The suspect took an undisclosed amount of money and left the location in an unknown direction.
The second home invasion occurred between 3:30 and 4:15 p.m. on April 9. The suspect knocked on an apartment door in the 6900 block of Marsue Drive, 21215. When the resident answered the door the suspect pushed his way into the apartment. He assaulted the victim and took his jacket before fleeing the scene. The victim was transported to an area hospital for treatment of his injuries.
Both victims were older people who spoke primarily Russian with minimal English-speaking skills. Both incidents occurred on Saturday afternoons. Police have deployed additional resources into the area to catch the suspect responsible for these crimes and to protect the community.
Both incidents are under investigation by the Pikesville Precinct Investigative Services Team. Anyone with information on the incidents is asked to call police at 410-307-2020 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP. Residents are also reminded to report suspicious activity in their community to police immediately.
