LONG NECK, Del. (AP/WBOC) - Delaware State Police are looking for a woman they say took part in a home invasion in Long Neck.

Troopers say on July 11 around 10 p.m., Erica Jones, 23 of Lincoln, and Niesha N. Bland, 20 of Laurel, broke into a residence in the 26000 block of Portside Drive brandishing a large pipe.

Officers say the two women assaulted a 32-year-old resident, whom they knew, and slapped the resident's 2-year-old son. Police say when the women fled, one used the pipe to smash the windshield of a car belonging to a 56-year-old male.

On July 12, police arrested Bland and charged her with home invasion.
