Po­lice look­ing for man with long dread­locks

An un­known as­sailant bur­glar­ized a Cov­ing­ton res­i­dence while the deaf res­i­dent was at home on March 20, ac­cord­ing to the Cov­ing­ton Po­lice De­part­ment pub­lic in­for­ma­tion log.

A home in­va­sion left a deaf Cov­ing­ton res­i­dent trau­ma­tized when an un­known as­sailant bur­glar­ized the res­i­dence while she was at home, ac­cord­ing to the Cov­ing­ton Po­lice De­part­ment pub­lic in­for­ma­tion log.

The 21-year-old Span­ish­s­peak­ing res­i­dent told po­lice, trans­lated by her hus­band, that a tall, thin, black male had come to the door around 2 p.m. and started bang­ing on it.

When she opened the door, he over­pow­ered her and pushed his way in, even though she tried to close the door. He re­port­edly had a painter’s stick in his hand and threw it across the front yard when he saw her.

She said he went into each room pock­et­ing items. Later, the cou­ple re­ported two rings miss­ing. The man then re­port­edly kicked in the locked door of their room­mate’s bed­room, caus­ing dam­age to the door frame, and took a sil­ver neck­lace and dig­i­tal cam­era.

The bur­glar, de­scribed as be­ing be­tween 18 to 20 years old, with long dread­locks and wear­ing a gray short sleeve shirt, fi­nally left run­ning to­wards Geiger Street.

The wife, who was four months preg­nant, told po­lice she did not know what to do dur­ing and af­ter the in­ci­dent and she had to wait un­til her hus­band and room­mate came back from work. There was no phone in the house­hold at the time.

The res­i­dence had been pre­vi­ously bur­glar­ized sev­eral days be­fore when they were not home, and a Nin­tendo Game Boy and DVDs were stolen.

CPD spokesper­son Lt. Wen­dell Wagstaff said there had been a few in­ci­dences of crim­i­nal ac­tiv­ity in the neigh­bor­hood lately and the CPD were con­cen­trat­ing pa­trols in that area.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about the bur­glary or other sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­i­ties is asked to con­tact the Cov­ing­ton po­lice at (770) 786-7605. Tips can be left anony­mously on­line at www. cov­ing­ton­po­lice. com/ se­cretwit­ness.html.
