FRANKFORD, Del.– Delaware State Police have arrested three suspects in connection with last week's home invasion in Frankford that left a man injured.

The suspects were identified as 19-year-old Collin L. Vincent of Harrington; 19-year-old Jacob T. Davis of Magnolia; and a 17-year-old Harrington girl. All three are charged with first-degree robbery, home invasion, first-degree burglary, wearing a disguise during the commission of a felony and second-degree conspiracy.

The incident allegedly occurred shortly after 2 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 24. Police said the 35-year-old male victim had met with the 17-year-old female suspect at the Royal Farms in Felton and the two drove back to his apartment on the 38000 block of Upland Court in Frankford where they began drinking alcohol. Troopers said that unbeknownst to the victim, Vincent and Davis had followed the two down to the Frankford home and remained in contact with the 17-year-old female suspect via text messaging. 

Police said that at one point, the 17-year-old unlocked the front door to the home and while the victim was in the bathroom, Vincent and Davis entered the home with their shirts covering their faces, and began punching and kicking him in the face, even pistol whipping the victim with a BB gun. 

Troopers said that after rummaging through the victim's pockets, the suspects were able to remove his wallet with an undisclosed amount of cash, keys, and a cellphone before all three departed the home.

The victim was transported by EMS to a local hospital where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries and released.
 
Later that same Thursday afternoon, troopers responded to a home in Harrington where they picked up the 17-year-old suspect and her boyfriend, identified as Vincent, and transported them back to Troop 4 where they were charged with the aforementioned crimes. Davis was picked up in Woodside on Thursday evening and was also transported back to Troop 4 and formally charged. 

The 17-year-old was committed to Stevenson House in Milford on $7,800 secured bond, while Vincent and Collins were ordered held in the Sussex Correctional Institution in lieu of $71,500 cash and $8,000 secured bonds respectively.
