Fayetteville Police are probing at least three home invasions over the last three weeks. The most recent incident occurred at a home in Haymount. Officers were dispatched to a residence on Ellington St. at 5:18 a.m. Feb 13. Police spokesman Sgt. Jeremy Glass said a man entered the residence through a rear sunroom door. The homeowner spotted the subject in a bedroom where his wife was sleeping. “Startled, the suspect discharged a firearm ... then fled the scene,” Glass said. No one was hurt.
Detectives are requesting the public’s assistance in reviewing security camera footage along Ellington Street toward Morganton Road during the night and early morning hours of Feb. 13. Anyone with video evidence is asked to contact police. The FPD reminds residents to lock their doors and windows, set their alarm systems, and remain vigilant to suspicious activity in their neighborhoods.
