SEAFORD, Del.-Delaware State Police are currently investigating a home invasion that happened in The Oaks development in Seaford early Friday night.
 
Police responded to the 23000 block of Young Street around 8:30 p.m. after getting a call that a man had just broken into the house. 

The investigation revealed that a 53-year-old woman was at the house cleaning which belongs to her parents, when someone entered through the front door showing a knife. 

Police said the suspect demanded the victim's money and when she told him that she didn't have any, he grabbed her purse that was laying on the couch.  

Authorities said as the victim attempted to stop the suspect from taking the purse, he punched her in the face causing her to fall through some closet doors.  

Police said the suspect then took off with the purse in an unknown direction.  

The woman was slightly injured. Police said she was checked out on scene by EMS and released.

Police describe the suspect as wearing a black ski mask, black hooded sweatshirt, and black pants.
