Baltimore County Police have charged a suspect in connection with a Thursday afternoon home invasion in Owings Mills that left two senior citizens injured.

At 4:19 p.m., Baltimore County Police responded to a home in the 9900 block of Middle Mill Drive 21117 for a report of a home invasion. When officers arrived on the scene, they found a 76-year-old man and his 76-year-old wife suffering from injuries to their heads.

The initial investigation into this incident has indicated that the couple were inside their home when they heard a knock at the door. When the woman opened the door, she encountered the suspect who started to strike her with what appeared to be a handgun. He then pushed her into a closet near the front door.

When the male came to see what was going on, the suspect struck him in the head several times with the gun and demanded the keys to his Lexus. The suspect took the keys to the Lexus and tried to start it, but was not successful. The suspect then fled the scene on foot.

The male further told police that the gun broke while the suspect was beating him with it. Police found a piece of plastic, which appeared to be from an air soft gun, in the area where the suspect assaulted him. A broken air soft gun was later found in a wooded area close to the scene.

Both victims were transported to an area hospital for treatment.

Officers located the suspect nearby and took him into custody. He has been identified as 21-year-old Wesley John Moore Jr of the 5100 block of Raintree Road 21218. He has been charged with home invasion, armed robbery, and related charges. He is being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

Investigators believe that this was a targeted crime.
