Police Seek Suspect in String of Nighttime Residential B&Es

City of Hyattsville, MD June 21, 2011 Since June 14, 2010, there has been an increase in the number of late night/early morning breaking & entering incidents in apartment complexes located in the vicinity of Ager Road and Queens Chapel Road. Two of these have resulted in a rape, and a third incident was an attempted rape.

All of the apartments were lower-level units, with access gained through a window. Police believe the suspect may be targeting units where he expects to find a woman home alone.
Because of the similar characteristics and suspect descriptions, the police believe all ten incidents may be linked. The Federal Bureau of Investigation is assisting with developing a profile of the suspect. Investigators have also shared information and sought assistance from Prince George’s County Police.

The description of the suspect is as follows: a black male, 18 – 30 years of age, dark complexion, slim build, wearing a black or blue waist-length jacket. In every case, the victims stated that the suspect wore a mask.

Police have previously canvassed the neighborhood and distributed fliers encouraging residents to report any suspicious activity or persons who may have been in the area during these incidents. Police also encourage all residents to secure all windows and doors at night and report any non-working pedestrian and street lights.

If you have information which may assist us in investigation of this case, please contact Sergeant Suzie Johnson, Hyattsville City Police Department at 301/985-5077 or sjohnson@hyattsville.orgRead on...
