Greenbelt City police are investigating a bizarre squatting incident. Two roommates returned to their Maryland apartment after a weeklong vacation, to find nearly all of their belongings gone and two strangers sleeping in one of their beds!
The residents reported to police that after entering the apartment, they found two suspects, a man and a woman sleeping in one of the beds. The suspects, told the residents they took all their property, and then reportedly became aggressive with the victims, tackling one before eventually fleeing the scene.
“He tackles me, and I’m like ‘sir this is my home you not gone let me leave?’ He’s like, ‘no I’m just saying you not gone call the police. I’m going to give you your apartment you just not gone call the police.’”
Greenbelt City Police say they are aware of this and have officers actively patrolling the area.
“I just couldn’t believe this was happening to me, I see this on TV,” one victim explained to Fox 5. “They really took over my apartment, and I was just trying to remain 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.”
