Suspects Sought in Frederica Home Invasion

Posted:

FREDERICA, Del.- Delaware State Police on Tuesday reached out to the public for help in identifying a group of suspects wanted in connection with a home invasion that left two people injured in Frederica earlier this month.

Troopers said the incident happened at around 9 p.m. Dec. 4 when four to five suspects forced their way inside a home on the 100 block of Lowber Street and demanded money. According to investigators, a 58-year-old male victim and a 49-year-old female victim were sleeping in a back bedroom when they were awakened by the noise and confronted by one of the suspects as he entered the room. 

Troopers said that as the male victim attempted to flee from the suspect, he was shot in the buttocks one time. Police said he then was dragged into the hallway along with his 49-year-old wife. Investigators said that two other suspects entered the bedroom of a 21-year-old victim and his 20-year-old girlfriend and upon demanding money from the male victim began pistol whipping him in the head with a handgun and removed an undisclosed amount of money from his pockets. The two were then forced into the living room by the suspects where three other victims0 including a 7-year-old boy- were forcefully placed, police said. Investigators said the suspects removed several video games, cellphones, and car keys before fleeing the home in an unknown direction.
 
The 58-year-old male and 21-year-old male were transported by EMS to Milford Memorial Hospital where they were treated for non-life-threatening injuries and released. None of the other victims in this incident were reported as injured.

According to police, the suspects were described as follows:

  • Black male, 6-foot-tall to 6-foot-5, 250–300 pounds, wearing all black clothing and a red bandana around concealing the bottom portion of his face. He was armed with an unknown type rifle.
  • Black male, 6-foot-tall to 6-foot-3, 170–180 pounds, wearing all black clothing and a red bandana around concealing the bottom portion of his face. He was armed with an unknown type handgun.
  • Two or three other black males, dressed in all black with no further physical or clothing description given.

Anyone with information about this incident asked to contact Detective P. Surowiec at (302) 741-2814 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."
