April 16, 2013|By Justin Fenton, The Baltimore Sun

A man told police he was tied up and robbed of cash and a handgun in a pre-dawn home invasion in Patterson Place committed by men who flashed a police badge, according to a police report. 

The victim told police that at about 5 a.m. on Monday, he heard a loud banging at his front door in the 100 block of N. Montford Ave. and saw two unknown males standing outside the home wearing dark clothing - one who showed a police badge, the report says. 

As he opened the door, the males forced their way in and dragged him to a room where they tied him up, police said. One of them had a shotgun and demanded that they not look at his face. A pregnant woman in the home was told to "put your head in the pillow," the report says.

The victims said that suspect took the man to a safe in a closet, told him to open it, and took $1,400 and a .32 caliber handgun and fled, according to the report. The report said that police were trying to sort through "multiple discrepencies" in the accounts from the three people inside the home.
