A couple who reportedly tried to use a butcher knife to force the woman’s ex-boyfriend out of a Brooklyn Park house early Friday morning now face burglary charges in Anne Arundel County.
Police were called to the 200 block of Third Avenue at 12:30 a.m. for a dispute and home invasion. The resident identified two suspects he knew.
Officers were told that both suspects – a man and a woman -- entered the residence, resulting in an argument with the occupants. The male suspect attempted to strike the home’s occupants with a butcher knife as the occupants were trying to force the suspects out of the residence.
