Albemarle County Police are looking for the suspect of a home invasion that happened early Friday morning.

It happened a little before 7 a.m. Friday morning. That's when a man invaded the home at 341 Bennington Road and as of now the suspect is still on the loose and that he's armed and dangerous.

Residents of the fairly quiet neighborhood on North Bennington Road got an unexpected wake-up call Friday morning.

"We responded to this address this morning for an attempted armed robbery" said Sgt. Terry Walls of the Albemarle County Police.

And now police are looking for 25-year-old Cabell R. Clatterbaugh.

After breaking into the house authorities say Clatterbaugh hit a man inside over the head with a gun and sped off.

"This guy was doing 55-60 miles an hour on this narrow highway and like I said we kind of jumped off the side of the road and he went screaming by" said neighbor David Austin.

And while police have found that car, the suspect is still on the loose.

"We got units looking for the suspect and we will have an officer obtaining warrants in the near future" said Walls.

As far as the string of robberies that hit the area several months ago, that culprit was found. Clatterbaugh is a 25-year-old white male with brown hair and brown eyes. He's six foot one and 185 pounds.

If you have any information about the suspect you're asked to call crimestoppers at 434-977-4000.
