At this time, police don't know if any property was taken.

This was several hours before President Donald Trump tweeted criticizing Cummings and his district including Baltimore.

Trump has continued to criticize over the last couple of days. Cummings has remained mostly silent as Trump continued to tweet and speak about Baltimore's high crime rate and what he called a "rodent-infest mess."

On Thursday, he visited Baltimore constituents in Waverly.

A neighbor told WJZ that he has known Rep. Cummings for years and was shocked to hear about the break-in.

"Anything he can do to help this neighborhood he has been there for us," the neighbor said.

Right now, there are no suspects in the burglary case.

One family who lives on the congressman's street told WJZ they did capture some video footage on their doorbell camera.

Detectives from the Central District are investigating this incident. Anyone with information is asked to call 410-396-2221 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7Lockup.
