Two armed men reportedly broke into an Arbutus home and shot at a dog after threatening a female resident.
Police said that at around 10:35 a.m. on Sept. 11, two masked suspects pried open the rear basement door of a home at the 5500 block of Council St. in Arbutus and approached the 52-year-old woman in the living room area.
One man pointed a black handgun at the resident and told her to get on the floor, according to police.
The armed man fired one shot at the woman's barking dog, then left the home through the basement door and fled the scene, police said.
The men were described as wearing ski masks and all black clothing, police said. They drove away in a blue or green Jeep Cherokee.
