Dale City man charged in Pr. William wrong-home invasion

One of the two men who allegedly stormed into a Lake Ridge townhouse looking for drugs -- the wrong house, as it happened -- was arrested Tuesday, Prince William County police said.

On March 11, police said, two men kicked down a home's ground-level door, forced a 29-year-old woman into a second-floor bedroom, made her lie face-down on the floor and searched the home for drugs. They didn't find any.

The men left when they realized they had the wrong target, police said. The woman's three young children, all younger than 5, hid in another section of the house during the attack. All were unharmed.

On Tuesday, Prince William police arrested Shyreece N. Brown, 29, after detectives executed a search warrant at his home in the 3400 block of Braddock Drive in Dale City, police said.

Police are still seeking a second man.
