Montgomery County Frequents Takoma Park Area
The Takoma Park Police Department urges citizens to be alert concerning an individual currently wanted through the Montgomery County Police Department for charges related to a recent robbery and home invasion. Charles Demetrius Terry, 40, approximately 5’8, 170 lbs is known to frequent the Takoma Park area.
On October 18, 2009, Terry was stopped by the Takoma Park Police in the 6700 block of Conway Avenue for knocking on a resident’s door and asking for money. This is the same method he used with the most recent victim of a robbery/home invasion in Montgomery County. Terry approached the victim who was outside her residence and asked to use her phone. Before she could react, Terry had already made his way into her home demanding money. The victim was unharmed.
Never open the door to strangers or let them know you’re alone. Ask service people for an ID before you open the door. Be aware of your surroundings at all times.
Terry has listed Maple Avenue as his residence in the past. If you come into contact with him, please use caution and contact the Takoma Park Police at 301-270-1100 immediately.
