The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office has released a composite sketch of a suspect in the Jan. 14 home invasion in Sterling.
The incident happened around 4:30 p.m. in the 22000 block of Mayfield Way. Two men walked into a house and confronted two males who were inside the basement. One of the suspects brandished a firearm and took a wallet and cash from the victims. Detectives believe the home was targeted and are investigating the circumstances of the robbery.
The suspect in the composite sketch is described as a dark-skinned black male, approximately 6’2” tall with a medium build. He appeared to be in his early 20s with some facial hair on his chin and cheeks. He was wearing dark colored jeans and a black hooded sweatshirt at the time of the robbery.
The second suspect was also described as a dark-skinned black male, approximately 5’10” tall with a thin build. He was wearing a lime green hooded sweatshirt with light colored jeans at the time of the robbery.
Both suspects fled the scene on foot and were last seen running toward West Greenthorn Avenue and the W&OD Trail.
