Exes Exact Revenge: Two Women Accuse Former Partners of Break-Ins
The following information was supplied by the Montgomery County Police Department. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.
Two different women in East Montgomery County told police their homes had been broken into—mundane enough. Both women, though, accused former partners of the crimes, according to a summary of crimes provided by Montgomery County Police.
The first woman accused her ex-boyfriend of entering her apartment in the 14100 block of Castle Boulevard sometime between noon on Monday, Aug. 6 and midnight on Tuesday, Aug. 7. She said he had a key to her place, but went inside without permission and stole video games. No word on whether anyone was arrested.
A few days later, police say a woman told police her estranged husband went into her home through an unlocked window on Sunday, Aug. 12 around 3:15 a.m. The husband approached the victim and a male guest in the basement, but the woman told police that she escorted him out and reported the incident later in the day.
Elsewhere in East County, police are investigating a series of robberies that they believe are unrelated:
- Armed robbery/kidnapping: On Aug. 6, an adult male reported he was approached by another male while sitting in his vehicle in the 13300 block of Old Columbia Pike at 5:50 a.m. The robbery suspect pulled out a silver handgun and demanded cash before getting into the victim’s vehicle and saying that he wanted to go to an ATM so that the victim could withdraw more money.
The victim told police the robber then directed him to drive to the area near Copland Court and Brahms Terrace. The robber got out of the car and ran away, but not before stealing $113 and a cell phone, which he tossed before running away and the victim got back.
- Robbery/Assault: On Aug. 8, an adult male told police that he was approached by another male around 1 p.m. who started to talk to him before assaulting him and grabbing his chain from his neck. The suspect left in a black four-door car with tinted windows. The robbery happened in the area of Tech Road and Broadbirch Drive.
- Robbery/Assault: On Aug. 11, an adult male said that he was approached by another male while sitting in his vehicle around 2:30 a.m. in the 13500 block of Parkford Manor Drive. The robber punched him in the face, knocking him unconscious, and stole his cell phone and iPod.
