PGPD Investigates Robbery in Fort Washington

The Prince George’s County Police Department is investigating a robbery at a Fort Washington home.  Detectives do not believe this was a random crime and have evidence to suggest the suspects targeted the home.

On December 18, 2012, at approximately 2:20 am, police officers responded to the 9100 block of Loughran Road for a residential robbery.  Upon arrival, police officers found an adult man suffering from a single gunshot wound.  The victim was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. He has since been released.

The preliminary investigation reveals that two armed suspects forced their way into the home. The homeowner confronted the suspects who made demands for his property.  A confrontation broke out, during which the victim was shot. The suspects then ran away, stealing an undetermined amount of money and jewelry.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Prince George’s County Police Department’s Robbery Unit at (301) 772-4905.  Callers wishing to remain anonymous may call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477), text “PGPD” plus your message to CRIMES (274637) on your cell phone, or go to http://www.princegeorgescountymd.gov/police to submit a tip online.
