County residents were victimized by three home invasions recently or, in one case, more of a home-away-from-home invasion:
• A known suspect forced his way into a home in the 4700 block of Twelveoaks Road in the Glen Tara subdivision around 2 p.m. on July 14 and assaulted a resident, then left the area. Nothing was reported stolen.
• An unknown suspect knocked on the door of a room at the Econo Lodge in the 2300 block of Indian Hill Road near the Woods Edge Road interchange on Interstate 95 around 1:30 a.m. on July 15. A male guest in the room opened the door and several suspects entered. They assaulted the male guest and a female guest, then ran out of the room and fled in a vehicle.
• Two suspects entered a home in the 9800 block of Cattail Road around 1:45 a.m. on July 17 through a back door with no signs of forced entry. The suspects assaulted a resident and stole cash, consumable goods, electronic devices, jewelry and miscellaneous items.
