Man Forces Way Into Home, Punches Occupant
Police said that an Annapolis man answered the door at 3:30 a.m. to find two strangers on his doorstep insisting they had business.
A man forced his way into the house of an Annapolis man and punched him in the mouth before running off early Saturday morning.
Police reported that a man living in the unit block of Rosemary Street answered the door for two male subjects at approximately 3:30 a.m. The man said he didn't recognize either of the men standing in his doorway, but one stepped forward saying they had business.
Detective Amy Miguez said, "The guy said to the victim 'we have business,' and the victim said 'no, I don’t have business with you.'"
The victim tried to shut the door, but the man was able to get into the house. Once inside the home, police reported that an argument ensued and the assailant punched the man in the mouth before running off.
Police reported that his jaw was swollen upon arrival, but the man declined medical treatment.
Miguez said the man lives in a home that he shares with five other people and police are investigating what might have brought the two men to the front door at 3:30 a.m.
Miguez said, "The victim said he certainly didn’t know why they were there."
