Article from Patch News:
A string of burglaries and robberies in Bethesda and Chevy Chase has neighbors on edge, and news Wednesday of a Bethesda home invasion robbery has exacerbated concerns.
Police say they have no reason to believe a recent uptick in second district burglaries and a surge of robberies along Western Avenue are related to the home invasion robbery Wednesday, during which a mother, her teenage son, and a housekeeper were bound. The housekeeper, police say, was sexually assaulted.
But neighborhood public safety discussions prompted by the burglaries and robberies are being heightened following the home invasion, said Liz Langsfeld, a resident of the Bethesdas Crestview neighborhood, near Western Market.
Langsfeld said she first noticed an uptick in thefts from autos in her neighborhood last year. Then, the car thefts started four from her neighborhood, including hers, which was stolen in mid-September.
Police found it ditched in Northeast Washington, she said.
