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

Police said the incident occurred at approximately 2:15 a.m. as three male suspects, armed with handguns and baseball bats, forced their way inside a home located on the 200 block of North Wilson Drive in the DuPont Manor neighborhood. Once inside, the suspects demanded money from the seven male victims. The victims complied with the demands and turned over an undisclosed amount of cash before the suspects fled the home in an unknown direction, police said.

Troopers said that during the incident, the suspects assaulted and injured four of the seven occupants. A 29-year-old male victim was transported to Kent General Hospital where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries and released. The three other male victims who were injured refused any medical treatment.
 
Police said detectives have determined through preliminary interviews and investigation that this was not a random act, and the victims were targeted in the home invasion.

The three suspects were further described as black, wearing dark hooded clothing and dark colored masks. 
 
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 www.tipsubmit.com, or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword "DSP."

    Gov. Martin O'Malley has said he may issue an executive order creating a pilot program for reforms to criminal bail procedures. It would be the next chapter in Maryland's efforts to comply with a Court of Appeals ruling that defendants have a right to legal counsel at every bail hearing. Legislators failed to agree on a solution this past session.
