Police investigate targeted home invasion in Fairfax County

Police are investigating a targeted home invasion robbery that occurred in the Alexandria section of Fairfax County on Wednesday.

A 24-year-old Maryland man was sleeping in a home in the 37000 block of North Rosser Street around 2 a.m., when three men woke him up and demanded money, Fairfax County police said.

Two of the men had handguns, police said. The suspects took an undisclosed sum of cash, jewelry and electronics. A 45-year-old Alexandria man was also home at the time of the robbery. Neither victim was injured.

The suspects were all described as black and between 25 and 30 years old. They ranged in height from 5’7” to 6” and weighed between 160 and 175 pounds. As the suspects fled, the victim reported hearing the voice of a woman, who appeared to be with them. She was never seen.

Police said they do not believe the home invasion robbery was random, but did not elaborate.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Solvers by phone at 1-866-411-TIPS/8477.
