Suspects Sought in Frankford Home Invasion

Updated:

FRANKFORD, Del.– Delaware State Police are looking for two suspects who beat and robbed a man during an early Thursday morning home invasion in Frankford.

Troopers said the incident occurred around 2:36 a.m., as two masked suspects entered the home located on the 38000 block of Upland Court and confronted a 35-year-old male victim in the bathroom.  The suspects then began assaulting the victim and at one point held an unknown type of gun to his head before fleeing the residence with the victim's wallets, keys and cellphone.

The victim was transported by EMS to a local hospital where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries and released.  Troopers said they have determined through preliminary interviews and an investigation that this was not a random act, and the victim may have been targeted in the home invasion.

The suspects are being described as two masked males, one armed with an unknown type of handgun.  No further physical or clothing description was available.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Detective S. Kelly at (302) 856-5850, ext. 219 or by utilizing the DSP Mobile Crime Tip Application available to download at: http://www.delaware.gov/apps/.  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."
