Home invasion robbery in Montgomery County

Two robbers pulled a shotgun on a homeowner shortly after 12:30 a.m. Monday as the victim got out of his car in his garage in the 600 block of Cobblestone Court in the Stonegate neighborhood, Montgomery County police said.

Two men wearing ski masks demanded money after one of the suspects pointed a shotgun at the 51-year-old man, police said. The victim struggled with the robbers, according to police, and was shot in the foot suffering a non-life-threatening injury.

 The suspects fled without getting money, police said.

Police describe the suspects as black men — one is about 5-feet 9-inches with a medium complexion and slight build, the other man is about 5-feet 5-inches with a dark complexion and medium build.

Anyone with information about the suspects or robbery may call the police department’s robbery section at  240-773-5100.
