Three masked men, one of them armed with a handgun, injured a man and a woman by dousing them with bleach during a home invasion and robbery Monday afternoon in Annapolis.
The robbery happened at 2:45 p.m. on Greenbriar Lane, which is south of Forest Drive. Three men forced their way into the home and doused the 50-year-old woman who owns the home and a 34-year-old man who was doing some work at the home, city police spokesman Sgt. Eric Crane said.
The men then ransacked the home and took two cellphones before running away.
The victims were taken to the Bayview Burn Center in Baltimore with serious but not life-threatening injuries, city fire department spokesman Dale Thompson said.
Both suffered serious burns to their faces, Crane said.
There appears to be some connection between the victims and the suspects, Crane said. “This was not a random robbery,” he said.
The victims’ conditions could not be determined Tuesday morning.
Edit: No burns on her face, but her arms were severely burned by the bleach. The man was released with lesser wounds.
