Gun pointed at 10-year-old, baby punched during Pasadena home invasion
PASADENA, Md. (WBFF) - A woman named Noel had tears in her eyes as she explained: “He pointed a gun at my 10-year-old daughter.”
On Monday evening, at about 7 p.m., Noel said she was outside her home on Willing Court in Pasadena when a man approached her and asked for a cigarette. At the same time another man, wearing a mask, came up, showed her a gun, and demanded money.
Then, she said, he pushed his way into her home. She had three children inside - a 10-year-old, a 6-year-old and a 1-year-old baby.
She said the gunman went through the house, looking for anything he could grab. He stole cash, among other things.
Noel said on the way out, he punched her baby, Jack, in the face. She explained that Jack had heart problems and had even had surgery.
Noel said: “This neighborhood has gotten completely out of control. I just hope he is caught, because one of my children could have been murdered or I could have been dead."
Anne Arundel County Police said in a press release that the homeowner's husband confronted the suspect as he returned home.
"After a brief struggle, the suspect fled from the residence with an undetermined amount of currency," said police.
The suspect is described only as a thin, black male about 6 feet tall, wearing a black, hooded sweatshirt.
