DOVER, Del.- Delaware State Police are looking for several suspects wanted in connection with a late Monday night home invasion north of Dover that left a teenager injured.

Police said the incident occurred around 11 p.m. on the unit block of Boxton Court in the Lakeshore Village community. Troopers said the 19-year-old victim had entered the garage of his home when four to five male suspects went inside and began assaulting him while demanding drugs and money.

The suspects then forced the male victim and his 14-year-old sister, who was sleeping in her bed, into the basement of the house. Police said the suspects began removing electronic devices such as computers, flat screen televisions and cellphones before fleeing the home in an unknown direction.

Police said the male victim was slightly injured as a result of the assault but refused medical treatment. The 14-year-old female victim was not injured in this incident.

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

The suspects were described as black males, wearing dark colored clothing and black masks with gloves.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Detective S. Horsman at (302) 741-2826 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 the Internet at www.tipsubmit.com, or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword "DSP."
