Police search for suspects in Aberdeen home invasion

Aberdeen police are looking for a man who forced his way into an Aberdeen home early Monday morning and assaulted a man inside.

Police said the woman was in her apartment when two men entered uninvited and began assaulting her. The suspects then ransacked the apartment, stole cash and ran out of the apartment. The men were gone when police arrived, according to Sgt. Will Reiber, of the Aberdeen Police Department.

Police weren't able to get a better description of the men, who remained at large Thursday.

"Other than money that was taken, that's all we know," Reiber said. "We're relying on the community, that anyone who's heard anything, we're asking those people to step forward and be a voice for the victim."

Police are unsure if the victim, who lived in the apartment, was the target.

"We can't establish a connection between the victim and her attackers. These two individuals are at large who we don't have any information about," Reiber said Wednesday. "We're treating them as dangerous. the public should be concerned, and I'm saying that because two people physically entered someone's apartment and carried out that crime."

Anyone with information is requested to contact the Aberdeen Police Department at 410-272-2121 and ask to speak with Detective Garrett.
