Maryland residents return from vacation to find squatters in their homes

Two Maryland residents returned to their apartment after going on vacation and found a pair of strangers sleeping in their house. The two friends, who live together in the apartment in Greenbelt, Maryland, said the squatters destroyed the front door of their home. The suspects, a man and a woman, also told residents they had taken all of their possessions, FOX 5 reports. Before fleeing the scene, the squatters allegedly ordered residents not to call the police.

One of the tenants, whose identity is not disclosed, said she did not leave her home for a week after the terrifying incident because she was traumatised.

“Not only were they in my house, but everything in my house was gone except my bed because he details how much he loved my bed so much,” the woman said. “And I’m like who are you?” And he says my name. It’s like you haven’t paid your rent. I’m like what are you talking about? I paid my rent.

The police are still looking for the suspects, who allegedly tackled the residents before fleeing.

“He attacks me and I tell him ‘Sir, this is my house, you haven’t left, let me go?’ He’s like, ‘no, I’m just saying you didn’t go and call the police. I’m going to give you your apartment, you’re just not going to call the police,’ the woman said.

The resident, who lost around $50,000 worth of items, recorded the man as he told her how he broke into the house. She also said the intruder told her he planned to break into another apartment.

“I just couldn’t believe this was happening to me, I see this on TV,” the woman said. “They really took over my apartment and I was just trying to stay calm. But at the same time, I just couldn’t believe this was happening to me. I come home and literally two people are in my bed relaxing.
