BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Detectives are looking for three suspects as they investigate a home invasion that happened August 1 in the Mount Vernon community.
Baltimore police posted a video asking the public to identify three people seen breaking into a home in the area.
The victim, a 30-year-old man, was followed home, and once he reached the door, two of the suspects went into the home after him.
Once inside, the suspects assaulted the victim and then left with his cell phone.
Neighbors tell WJZ the suspects got away with not only the victim’s belongings but also their sense of security.
“It’s a decent neighborhood but you know its still a neighborhood,” neighbor John Bernatites said.
Lenessa Yadata said she also lives by the victim.
“That’s pretty scary to know that happened here,” she said. “I hope he’s okay.”
Anyone with information is asked to call detectives at 410-396-2221 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1866-7-LOCKUP.
Callers can always remain anonymous, police said.
