Baltimore Police Report Another Villages of Homeland Home Invasion

This is the third such incident reported in the area since February.

A woman was robbed at knifepoint in her home in the Villages of Homeland.

According to Baltimore police, at 11:15 p.m., Thursday in the 5200 block of Downing Road a woman opened the door to walk out of her home when a robber pushed open the door.

The woman then was forced to the ground, and the robber placed a knife to her throat.

The woman’s roommate heard the commotion, saw the robber and then locked herself in her room.

The robber then went upstairs and the woman followed him and gave him an undisclosed amount of money.

The robber then fled the house in an unknown direction.

There have been two other similar robberies in that area since February.

On March 18, a robber armed with a handgun broke into a home in the 300 block of Homeland Southway and demanded money.

In February, two robbers armed with handguns chased two women into their apartment in the 300 block of Homeland Southway.

Following the March incident, Maj. Sabrina Tapp-Harper, the Northern District commander, said that officers would be coordinating with secutiry from nearby Loyola University of Maryland to adjust deployments in hopes of making an arrest.
