Hyattsville Crime Map: Home Invasion

It was quite a frightening week in crime for at least one Hyattsville household when . 

The incident, which happened in the 4000 block of Hamilton Street on the morning of Friday, March 30, had police alerting the public to be on the lookout for a light-skinned black man, standing about 5 feet, 11 inches tall with a medium build. City police said that the man was wearing the uniform of a well-known delivery company, but the company was not identified. 

During the robbery, the man displayed a black semi-automatic handgun and made off with a small amount of cash and some personal items from the home. 

The rest of the crime this week in Hyattsville was more typical, with shopliftings, robberies and theft from cars. 

The full data is below, the map is above. Enjoy and be safe.
