Suspect forced woman to give him car keys in Maple Grove house invasion

Maple Grove police are investigating after a man reportedly went into a home and forced a woman to give up her car keys Tuesday morning.

Police say around 10:25 a.m. officers responded to a report of forced entry into a home on the 16800 block of 80th Place North. The suspect made the homeowner give him her purse and car keys. He then left the area in her vehicle.

The vehicle is a 2015 Silver Honda Accord with a Minnesota license plate of 944THK.

The suspect is described as a black man in his early 20s, about 5 feet 2 inches tall to 5 feet 4 inches tall with a stocky build. At the time of the incident, he was wearing grey cargo pants and a black hooded sweatshirt pulled around his face.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is urged to call 911.

A forced entry case, which happened last week, is also under investigation in Columbia Heights
