Photos of Suspect from Derwood Home Invasion Robbery Released

Montgomery County Police Department (MCPD) detectives released surveillance photos of the suspect from an attempted home invasion robbery on Feb. 28 in Derwood. 

MCPD continues to investigate the attempted robbery and ask for the public’s help in identifying the suspect.

At around 1:37 p.m. on Feb. 28, a suspect knocked on the door of a home on Titonka Way, according to a press release from police. The homeowner opened her door and met the suspect, who was dressed as a delivery driver and was carrying a box.

The suspect then showed the homeowner a gun and she yelled to a second resident in the home. The suspect then entered the foyer and threatened to kill both residents of the home. He pushed the second resident and struck the first resident in the head with his handgun. 

He then fled the home and dropped the box in the driveway. The box was recovered by detectives, who found a duffel bag inside the box. 

Detectives released home video surveillance from a neighbor’s camera. The video shows the suspect running to the passenger side of an unmarked white van after the attempted robbery. After the suspect enters the vehicle, the van flees down the road.

Anyone with relevant information should call the Major Crimes Division at 240-773-5100. The Crime Solvers of Montgomery County will pay up to $10,000 for relevant information and can be reached anonymously at 1-866-411-8477.
