Newburg, Maryland Home Invaders Chased Off By Victim With Handgun

Newburg, Maryland

From the August 21, 2009 Independent:
Two masked men armed with a handgun held up a man and woman Tuesday in a Newburg home invasion, according to police.

The victim arrived at the Waverly Point Road home and was talking with his wife in the garage at about 8:25 p.m. when the robbers walked up, police reported. The robber carrying the handgun ordered the victim inside the home and started looking for valuables. The second masked man stayed in the garage with the victim's wife, according to police.

The arrival of the victim's son disrupted the robbery and gave the victim a chance to get a handgun. The victim fired two shots at an open field, and the robbers ran away toward a wooded area, according to Diane Richardson, spokeswoman for the Charles County Sheriff's Office.

The victim then called police, who searched the area and gathered evidence from the scene.
