GAITHERSBURG, Md. (WUSA9) -- Two masked men forced their way into a Gaithersburg apartment in the 700 block of Quince Orchard Boulevard around 12 p.m. Friday afternoon.
WUSA9 has learned the suspect tried to tie up the victim but the victim was able to getaway. Police say there is some type of an association between the victim and suspects but it is not clear how they might know each other.
Half an hour earlier, around 11:30 a.m., Maryland State Police say they pursued a driver and a passenger who were speeding southbound on 270 near Montrose Road.
State Police called off the chase after four minutes. Montgomery County Police say officers spotted the car minutes later at 16th Street and Georgia Ave. in Silver Spring.
By then, the men had crashed the car and bailed from the car.
Police are searching for the men responsible for the two incidents and are trying to figure out if the two cases are related.
