Maryland Heights Investigating Home Invasion

MARYLAND HEIGHTS, MISSOURI, (KTVI) – Maryland Heights police called out the SWAT team Friday morning after reports of a home invasion and possible abduction.   Officers in heavy protective gear and carrying rifles swarmed the 11400 block of Pineview Crossing Drive in the Pinehurst subdivision off Adie Road.  No one was being held hostage inside the home.

Capt. Joe Delia of the Maryland Heights police department said two male suspects had entered the home using a ruse and forced the male resident into the trunk of a car.  He was bound and driven away.

He broke loose, pulled the trunk release and escaped several blocks away. Police say he was injured, but not seriously.  His girlfriend, also in the home at the time, eluded the robbers and got out of the house.

Police will provide extra patrols in the neighborhood, but they don’t expect the suspects to return.
