Detectives Investigate Burglary & Sex Offense

Detectives are working to identify and arrest the man who broke into a home in the Landover area. Once inside, he inappropriately touched an adult female. The victim does not know the suspect. 

The preliminary investigation reveals the suspect broke into the home in the 3000 block of Meadow Trail Lane on Sunday morning at approximately 6:00 am. The suspect entered the home through an unlocked window. He then inappropriately touched the victim before fleeing. 

The suspect is described as a black male, wearing dark clothing and a dark knit hat or hoodie. 

A similar incident occurred on January 7th, 2019, at a nearby home in the 6000 block of Landing Way. In that case, a suspect also broke into the home through a window, sexually assaulted a woman and then fled. Detectives are investigating whether these incidents are connected. 

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Sexual Assault Unit at 301-772-4908. Callers wishing to remain anonymous may call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477), or go online at, or use the “P3 Tips” mobile app (search “P3 Tips” in the Apple Store or Google Play to download the app onto your mobile device.)
