Two robbed at knifepoint inside home on Aberdeen's Loflin Road

Two people were attacked and robbed at knifepoint during a recent home invasion on Aberdeen's Loflin Road, the same address where a similar crime was reported in December 2012, the Harford County Sheriff's Office said.

At about 9:15 p.m. last Friday, two men forced their way through the front door of a home in the 1300 block of Loflin Road, where two men, ages 19 and 21, were watching a movie, Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Cristie Kahler said.

The suspects threw the victims to the ground and kicked them, Kahler said. They also threatened them with a knife and demanded money. The victims handed over an undisclosed amount of money.

Both victims suffered minor injuries but declined medical attention, Kahler said.

The suspects are described as black men whose faces were covered; they were wearing black shirts and dark jeans. One was about 40 years old, while the other's age is unknown, Kahler said.

Detectives are continuing to investigate, she said.

A home invasion robbery was reported at the same address on Dec. 23, 2012, when three men forced their way into a home, went through the pockets of three people in the home and stole iPhones and money at gunpoint, according to the Sheriff's Office at the time.

In that case, one victim was injured and bleeding but refused treatment, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Kahler said the victims in the latest incident were not the same as in 2012. As of Friday afternoon, she said, detectives have concluded there is not relationship between the latest incident and the one in 2012.

The Sheriff's Office closed the 2012 case after making a single arrest, Kahler said.

According to court records, the person arrested in 2012 faced multiple armed robbery and robbery charges that ultimately weren't prosecuted by the Harford State's Attorney's Office.
