Troopers Investigate Long Neck Home Invasion

Posted: Updated:

LONG NECK, Del.- Delaware State Police are looking for two suspects wanted in connection with a home invasion that occurred early Tuesday afternoon in Long Neck.  
 
Police said that at around 1:15 p.m., two male suspects barged into a home in the 25000 block of Lingo Drive where they confronted a 25-year-old woman who was home alone with her 17-month-old child.

Police said the two suspects demanded cash but when the victim was unable to comply, one of them struck her in the face.  

Authorities said that the two suspects took a handgun that was sitting in a bedroom before taking off for Enchanted Acres Mobile Home Park.  

Police said the woman did not need any medical attention.
 
State Police Aviation along with State Police K9s scoured the area but did not find the suspects. 

Detectives said they determined through preliminary interviews and investigation that this was not a random act and the victim may have been targeted in the home invasion.

One of the suspects is described as a white male between 20 to 25 years of age. He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt and shorts.

The other suspect is described as a light-skinned black male, also between 20 to 25 years of age. He was last seen wearing a dark colored T-shirt.
 
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Detective R. Mears at (302) 856-5850, ext. 255. Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, via www.tipsubmit.com, or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword "DSP."
