Authorities release composite sketch of suspect involved in Taylorstown home invasion
The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office today released a sketch of one of four men that held a Taylorstown family against their will April 16 while they robbed their home.
The suspects in the case, two white men and two black men, are possibly driving a gold or tan Nissan SUV, possibly a 2003 Nissan Murano, according to reports.
Investigators have been searching for the men after they were called to the home in the 13400 block of Loyalty Road around 11:30 a.m. when the family was able to run to safety and call for help.
The family, consisting of a mother, father, daughter and two grandchildren, reported that an unknown man knocked on their door and said he had a delivery. He then forced his way into the home along with three other men.
The suspects brandished a weapon and the family was held against their will as the intruders removed items from the home. No one was injured during the robbery.
The suspect in the composite sketch, a white man, is described as being 17 to 25 years old, 5 feet 9 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall, with brown eyes and short black hair. He was described as having scruffy facial hair. He was last seen wearing a long-sleeved gray shirt with graffiti style writing and baggy jeans.
The second white man was said to be in his mid-20’s with red hair, acne on his face, approximately 5 feet 7 inches to 6 feet tall and 170 pounds. One of the black men was described as heavyset and was bald. The fourth suspect, also a black man, was described as having a thin build, approximately 5 feet 9 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall with an angular shaped face.
The Sheriff's Office is asking anyone with any information regarding this case, or anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area on April 16, to call Detective S. Cumberledge of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division at 703-777-0475. Callers wishing to remain anonymous should call Loudoun Crime Solvers at 703-777-1919.
