HARTLY, Del.- Delaware State Police are investigating a Hartly home invasion that left two people injured- including one critically- early Wednesday.
Troopers said the incident occurred at approximately 3:45 a.m. as two unknown suspects in a blue vehicle pulled up to the home located on Brittney Drive. Police said one of the suspects entered the main home while the other went to a motor home parked in the driveway.
According to investigators, the suspect who entered the main home confronted a 29-year-old male victim with a handgun and removed his wallet from his pocket before ordering him outside. Once outside, the suspect then allegedly assaulted the victim, knocking him to the ground. The suspect then ran to the motor home where police say an apparent fight ensued between a 54-year-old male victim and the two suspects. The suspects then fled the area in an unknown direction.
The 29-year-old victim was treated at Kent General Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries sustained in the incident. The 54-year-old victim was initially treated at KGH before being flown to Christiana Medical Center where he is currently listed in critical condition.
Investigators were able to provide few details about the suspects, other than that they were both males, with one wearing a mask and armed with an unknown type of handgun.
