DOVER, Del. (WBOC/AP)- Police have charged a Dover man with assaulting an 83-year-old woman during a weekend home invasion.

Twenty-four-year-old Jameson Hoxter was arrested Tuesday after and charged with first-degree robbery, home invasion, second-degree assault of a victim 62 years of age or older, identity theft, unlawful use of a credit card and two counts of attempted use of a credit card.

Dover police said Hoxter confronted the woman with a handgun in her garage on Woodcrest Drive on Sunday and forced her into the home, where a struggle ensued. That's when police say Hoxter forced the woman into the basement and fled with her credit card, which he later used at a CVS store located at the corner of Route 8 and Saulsbury Road in Dover.

Police say the woman sustained minor injuries and is expected to recover.

Following his arrest on the aforementioned charges, Hoxter was ordered held in the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on $47,500 cash bond.
