View Larger Map

Thanks to everyone who sent emails about this horrifying incident. I apologize for the delay in posting.

From MPD Jan. 27th:

There was a burglary last in the 500 block of T Street, Northwest, at approximately 3:30 am.

A female knocked on the victim’s front door and acted as if she was crying. When the victim opened the door 2 male suspects forced their way in to the house.

Please be aware of any suspicious activity in your neighborhood. Don’t answer the door for anyone you do not know especially at late night, early morning hours.

The lookout for the suspects is as follows:

Black female, 17-18 years of age, 5’00”, slim approximately 120 lbs, dark complexion, wearing eyeglasses, hair at shoulder length and in a pony tail with bangs that come down to the eyes and wearing dark colored clothes.

Black male, 20’s years of age, round nose, round face, 5’07”-5’08”, 160 lbs, medium – dark complexion, short curly style hair, dark clothes and armed with a black in color semi automatic handgun.

Black Male 30’s years of age, 509″-5’10”, 165 lbs, brown complexion with very bad black acne, shoulder length dreads wearing black clothes and armed with a black in color semi automatic handgun.

From WJLA7:

“Elizabeth Samuel’s eye is bloody, her face is swollen, her head aches all over. She doesn’t even know how many times she was hit with a gun.

Her wrists and ankles are covered in bruises from where she was tied up and kept hostage in her own home.”

From Fox5:

“After enduring a half-hour of terror, her husband came home and fought the attackers who were armed with pistols. He took on the attackers armed with a wine bottle. Unfortunately he was pistol whipped from behind knocking him to the ground rendering him out of commission.

The suspects spent the next 30 minutes drinking and smoking inside the house before leaving with numerous items.”
