KENSINGTON, Md. - A woman forced her way into a home, tied up a 74-year-old man and stole his credit cards and cash, Montgomery County police said.
The home invasion robbery happened the afternoon of November 9 at a residence in Kensington. Police have released pictures of the female suspect and two additional suspects who are accused of using the victim’s cards.
After knocking on the victim’s door and asking to use the bathroom, police said the suspect pushed the victim, entered the home and punched him in the face. The suspect then ordered the victim to his bedroom and tied his hands behind his back, police said. The victim reported that the suspect threatened to stab or shoot him if he did not comply.
"She kept asking me for my ATM card and I kept telling her I didn’t have any money. And she said, ‘I know you’ve got money. You lie to me and I’ll kill you in a second.’ And she kept threatening to kill me,” said the victim, who police believe was targeted.
The suspect stole the victim’s bank and credit card, cash and PIN number. Investigators obtained surveillance pictures of the female suspect. Police said she used the victim’s cards at stores in Wheaton, Rockville and Vienna, and at an ATM.
Detectives also obtained surveillance pictures of two additional suspects using the cards – a male and a younger female.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call police at 240-773-5070.
