Aberdeen Police Investigate Home-Invasion Robbery
Aberdeen police are investigating a home-invasion robbery that happened early Wednesday morning at Blue's Crossing apartments at 700 Ray's Mills Road.
Police say a Hispanic male reported that someone knocked on his door about 2 a.m. He told police that when he answered the door, three black men forced him to turn around and pushed him back into the residence.
"They forced him into the bedroom, hit him on the head and ransacked the apartment," said Jim Foster, deputy chief with the Aberdeen police.
The suspects left the apartment with an undisclosed amount of cash, Foster said.
The victim's roommate reported to police that he was outside the apartment early that morning when he was assaulted by three black men.
Both men suffered injuries, Foster said, but they did not seek medical attention.
