Three people were robbed, and one of them was injured, during an armed home invasion in the Aberdeen area Sunday night, the Harford County Sheriff's Office reported.
According to a media release from the sheriff's office, three men were watching football in a home in the 1300 block of Loflin Road around 9:35 p.m. Sunday when three black men forced their way into the home.
Two of the occupants, Paul Brian Hartman Jr., 23, and Walter Jack Liles Jr., 22, who were visitors in the home, were ordered to lie on the floor, according to the sheriff's office. The robbers went through Hartman's pockets and stole cash, his wallet and iPhone and stole an iPhone from Liles.
The robbers then assaulted William Harry Burkheimer III, 23, who lives in the home, and stole an undisclosed amount of cash from him, the sheriff's office release said.
The victims reported seeing all three robbers with black pistols and told police the intruders threatened to shoot them.
After the robbers fled the home, Hartman and Liles got up to check on Burkheimer, who had been taken to another room in the home, and saw that he had been injured and was bleeding, the sheriff's office said. Hartman called 9-1-1.
Burkheimer was transported to Harford Memorial Hospital where he refused treatment and left the hospital before deputies arrived to interview him, the sheriff's office said.
Deputies searched the area for the three robbers but did not find them.
No additional descriptions of the robbers were available as of Monday morning, sheriff's office spokesman Eddie Hopkins said, adding that the investigation is continuing.
