Resident injured in home invasion, attempted robbery
— Chris Robinson |
A Gaithersburg man was hurt early Tuesday during an attempted armed robbery at his home in the unit block of State Court in east Gaithersburg, police said.
At about 4:20 a.m., three men armed with guns entered a home occupied by two residents and attempted to rob them, said Cpl. Jimmy Robinson, a spokesman for Montgomery County police.
Police did not know if property was stolen.
The residents, a 39-year-old man and 45-year-old woman, heard someone breaking into the house and the man went to investigate, according to a statement from police.
He encountered three black men, two with their faces covered. They began to struggle and one of the suspects fired his gun. No one was hit by the bullet, according to the police statement.
The woman looked out from a room, but one of the armed men forced her back into the room. She then called police, according to the statement.
The suspects fled on foot.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the police Robbery Section at 240-773-5100.
