The Montgomery County Police Department (MCPD) arrested and charged two adult males for a December 2020 armed home invasion robbery on Elgin Lane in Bethesda.

Khalil Powers Zalmai, 19, of River Road in Bethesda and Jaylen Gary Hunter, 20, of Colgate Way in Silver Spring were charged with home invasion, armed robbery, and use of a firearm during the commission of a felony, according to a statement from MCPD. Police said investigators are working to identify two more suspects.

On Dec. 11, 2020 around 8:44 p.m., police responded to a home on Elgin Lane for a home invasion report. An investigation found that three males with handguns entered the home, demanded money from residents but fled without cash or property.

Police identified Hunter as a suspect who entered the home and said Zalmai helped plan the invasion but did not enter.

Hunter was arrested July 2 and Zalmai was arrested June 8, both on strength of warrant. Zalmai was released after posting a $10,000 bond, according to MCPD.
