Sheriff’s office seeks help identifying Mount Airy home invasion suspect
Frederick County sheriff’s deputies are seeking help to identify and locate a man who they say broke into a home Wednesday in Mount Airy and assaulted an occupant.
Deputies were sent to a home in the 5300 block of Legion Drive at about 8:30 a.m. after 911 call-takers were notified that someone was breaking into a home with a female victim present, according to the release. The male suspect was gone by the time the first deputies arrived to find the female with injuries related to an assault, but investigators were able to pull images of the man from the home’s security cameras.
The female was evaluated by emergency medical personnel at the home, but the release did not provide details as to the nature or extent of her injuries. The release did not provide additional details on what was taken during the altercation, but investigators confirmed that the home invasion resulted in a robbery.
Anyone who can provide detectives with any information regarding either the robbery, the suspect or the vehicle used is asked to contact Detective Bryce McGuire at 301-600-3934. Anonymous tips can also be sent by email to FCSOtips@frederickcountyMD.gov, or by calling the agency’s tip line at 301-600-4131.
