Police Investigate Home Invasion in Dover

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del.-Dover police are investigating a home invasion that happened in the Dover Country Club Apartments on Friday.

Police said that at around 5:30 p.m., a female suspect approached a 91-year-old female victim in the hallway of her apartment building as she was opening her door and forced her into her apartment. 

They said that once inside, the suspect grabbed a kitchen knife and demanded money. 

The elderly victim gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of money and the suspect took off. 

The victim was not injured. The suspect is additionally described as black, between the ages of 20 and 30, 5-foot-1, thin build, wearing blue jeans with a pattern on the front and a bright colored red-orange bandana over her head. 

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Dover Police Department at (302)736-7111. 

Callers may remain anonymous. Tips can also be submitted to law enforcement through tip lines maintained by Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333 or on-line at www.tipsubmit.com.
 
Editor's note: Dover police originally reported that the home invasion occurred at Brandywine Court, when in fact the offense occurred at neighboring Dover Country Club Apartments. The department issued a correction for that error and wrote, "We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused."
