DOVER, Del.- Police have arrested a suspect in connection with a home invasion robbery that allegedly occurred early Tuesday evening in Dover.
Dover police said that at around 6:15 p.m., officers responded to the 100 block of Carnoustie Road in the Fox Hall neighborhood for a report of a homeowner who had confronted a burglar inside his home.
Investigators said the victim and the suspect got into a fight, during which time the suspect threatened to stab the homeowner. According to police, the suspect then ran out of the home with two laptop computers and money.
Responding officers set up a perimeter and a Dover police K-9 was able to track the suspect, later identified as 61-year-old Curtis Raison of Dover, to an area near the rear of Liberty Court where officers saw him running through the woods.
Police said officers were able to take Raison into custody despite his efforts to resist arrest. He was charged with home invasion, first-degree robbery, theft and resisting arrest with force or violence. He was also charged with another burglary that allegedly occurred on Nov. 15, in the 400 block of Troon Road.
Raison is being held in the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in default of $60,000 secured bond.
