From the Harford County Sheriff’s Office:
Harford County Sheriff’s Detectives are currently investigating an overnight Home Invasion which occurred in Abingdon.
At approximately 11:30 pm deputies responded to the 3100 block of White Oak Drive, Abingdon for a reported disturbance. Deputies arrived and observed a 26 year old male run toward the responding patrol car.
The victim advised that while investigating a noise outside several male suspects rushed him and forced their way into the residence. The male victim was forced outside while a 24 year old female victim remained inside the residence with the suspects.
Upon arrival of the Sheriff’s Deputy the male victim broke free, established contact and advised that the female was still inside with the suspects. Deputies quickly cleared the residence and took one suspect into custody. The additional suspects fled the area. Attempts to locate them were negative.
