MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Miami police need your help finding a home invasion suspect who was captured on surveillance video hopping the fence before holding a knife to the homeowner and demanding to be let inside.
It happened in the 2000 block of NW 18th Terrace on Sunday, December 8, around 4:00 p.m.
According to investigators, the victim was in the yard with his dog when a man, wearing a camo ski mask, black gloves, and armed with a knife, demanded to go in the house so he could find money.
Despite ransacking a bedroom, he didn’t find any.
A second victim, who was in the backyard at the time, heard his dog barking in an unusual way. When he made it to the front yard, he spotted a suspicious silver car in front of the home. When confronted, the driver appeared to have pulled out a gun, pointed it at him and then fled the scene.
