Drug-seeking Pr. William home invaders had wrong address, police say
Two men kicked in the rear door of a Lake Ridge townhouse Thursday afternoon and forced their way inside. They grabbed a 29-year-old woman, shoved her into an upstairs bedroom, placed her face down on the floor, and demanded to know where the drugs were.
Only, there weren't any drugs, Prince William County police said. The men broke into the wrong house, said police, and terrorized a mother who was home caring for her three young children -- all under the age of five.
"The suspects looked around in the residence and left when they did not find what they were looking for," police said in a news release Thursday afternoon. "The suspects were in the wrong house."
The mother and her three children were unharmed. Police said the suspects, described only as black males, did not appear to have weapons.
Anyone with information about the home invasion is asked to call Prince William County Crime Solvers at 703-670-3700 or 1-866-411-TIPS.
