Baltimore County police released pictures on Wednesday of two men they want to question in two Pikesville home invasions earlier this month, including one where a man and his daughter were tied up.
Police said two men knocked on the door the home in the 3200 block of Hatton Road, holding an empty cup, asking for water March 4. They flashed a handgun, and forced their way inside where they tied up the victim and his teenage daughter.
Police said around 8:15 p.m. the pair knocked on the door the home in the 3200 block of Hatton Rd. holding an empty cup. When the victim went to the kitchen to get them water, the men entered, flashed a handgun, and forced the victim and his teenage daughter into the living room, where they tied them up.
The men took several computer tablets, jewelry, a camcorder, a wallet, cash, an iPod touch and a cell phone, police said.
The victims suffered minor injuries but were not taken to a hospital.
One suspect was 28 to 30 years old and six-feet tall, and wore a black, parka-style ski jacket, a brown mask that covered his face from the nose down, black pants and brown work boots. He was armed with a silver handgun, police said.
The second man is 18 to 20 years old, 5-feet-10 inches tall and wore a black jacket, black mask that covered his face from the nose down, and black pants.
Less than half an hour earlier, police said a man getting out of his car in front of a home in the 700 block of Leafydale Terrace was approached by two men wearing masks and armed with handguns.
"You know what this is," one told him, before taking the victim's cell phone and wallet, police said. They walked the man to a nearby house and entered it but noticed many people were inside, and they fled toward Milford Mill Road.
One suspect is described as a black male, 30 to 40 years old, and six-feet tall, and wore a black leather jacket, a ski mask, and dark blue jeans. He had a silver handgun, police said.
The second suspect is described as 18 to 26 years old, and 5-feet-8, and wore a black jacket, a ski mask, black jeans, and brown boots. He had a dark colored handgun, police said.
The Pikesville Precinct Investigative Services Team is investigating whether the crimes were related and if the victims were targeted. Police urge residents not to answer the door for unknown persons and report any suspicious activity to police.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at 410-887-1279.
