Woman bound in home invasion

Matt Zapotosky

A woman was tied up, assaulted and robbed by a man who forced his way into her Hyattsville-area home Wednesday morning, authorities said.

The incident occurred just after 7 a.m. in the 3500 block of Hubbard Road, Prince George's County police said.

Cpl. Mike Rodriguez, a Prince George’s County police spokesman, said the man, who was apparently unarmed, made his way into the home, assaulted the woman and tied her up with a piece of clothing or “something like that.”

He then fled with some money, Rodriguez said.

The woman was injured, Rodriguez said, though the extent of those injuries remains unclear.

We readers want to know if he was welcomed into her home and if she was injured after his advances got rough.

We uh, researchers, want to know just what "something like that" was.

"something like that" - is that police speak? Is that in the official report?

Hyattsville area? Really?!

I just looked up the address and it's a good 5 miles from the southeast border of Hyattsville. Between this incident and Hyattsville are the towns of Bladensburg, Cheverly and Landover Hills.

This is an ongoing problem with the Post and other local media outlets. Hyattsville has enough of it's own issues without having to be tarred with the problems of every adjoining unincorporated area in the county.

Journalistic integrity would require a correction. Let's see it.
