Police are searching for three suspects in a reported home invasion and assault of an elderly couple in Glen Burnie.
A preliminary investigation suggests that the incident does not appear to
be a random crime, according to Anne Arundel County police.
Three men forced their way into an 87-year-old man's home on McPherson Road in Glen Burnie on Friday morning at about 5:27 a.m., police said. The man and his 73-year-old girlfriend were home at the time and all three suspects were reportedly wearing masks.
The three men assaulted the man and woman, then ransacked the home, taking money and property and fled in an unknown direction.
The male victim contacted police with the help of a neighbor. He and the woman were treated for injuries that were not life-threatening, police said.
