Two suspects arrested in Mt. Airy home invasion

Police have arrested of two of the four offenders in a home invasion that took place in West Mt. Airy last week. Two suspects remain at-large. 

On July 14, 2015, at 10:30 p.m., the complainant, a 32-year-old male, was inside of his home on the 500 block of Burnham Road when an unknown black male knocked on the front door. When the complainant checked his surveillance video, he determined he did not know the male who was knocking on his door and opened his front door slightly in an attempt to determine who it was.

When the complainant opened the door, a second unknown black male approached the door armed with a shotgun. The complainant quickly shut the door and two additional offenders could be seen on surveillance cameras joining the two suspects. All four suspects who were armed were attempting to gain entry into the home but were unable to gain entry. After a failed attempted at gaining entry to the complainant’s home, all suspects fled the area in an unknown direction.

Reggie Reid, a 30 year-old-male from the 400 block of Chestnut Street was arrested on July 16, and 27-year-old Alonzo Wallace from the 6100 block of Walker Street was arrested on July 17. Both are charged with burglary, attempted robbery, aggravated assault, simple assault, criminal trespass, and a slew of related offenses.

The remaining two offenders in the incident have not been arrested at this time.

Anyone with information on the remaining suspects’ whereabouts is asked to contact Northwest Detectives at (215) 686-3353.
