DOVER, Del.- Delaware State Police are looking for three suspects wanted in connection with an early Monday home invasion south of Dover that left a man injured.

Troopers said that shortly after 1 a.m. they responded to the unit block of McDaniel Drive after a 9-1-1 call was placed from the home stating that three people had just broken into the house.  Police said the investigation revealed that three male suspects forced their way through the rear door of the home and confronted the 37-year-old male victim in the living room where he was sleeping on the couch. 

Police said a physical confrontation ensued between the victim and one of the suspects, which led to the victim being struck in the back of the head with a handgun. This caused a round to be discharged into the ceiling of the home. Investigators said the suspects then ran out of the home without any valuables or money. The male victim was slightly injured as a result of the assault and was transported by EMS to Kent General Hospital where he was treated and released. 

Three children were home at the time of the incident, ranging between 9 and 12 years of age.  The children were not harmed or contacted by any of the three suspects, police said.

The three suspects were further described as wearing dark clothing and black masks with one armed with an unknown type of handgun.

Csapo at (302) 741-2810 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."
