The mayor of Riverdale is calling on more than a dozen suburban mayors to address a recent crime spree in their communities.

This comes after a home invasion that happened Wednesday night in the 14000-block of Normal Avenue.

The victim was inside his apartment when the armed suspects barged in and then stole his car. Police found them a few blocks away and arrested them.

Riverdale Mayor Deyon Dean is asking 16 suburban mayors and their police chiefs to attend a meeting on Sunday.
