Police: Woman Choked in Early Morning Home Invasion

Posted:

MAGNOLIA, Del. – Troopers are investigating an early morning home invasion in which investigators say a woman was choked.

At around 1:30 a.m. troopers responded to a report of a woman being attacked in her home in the 100-block of Flint Drive in the Meadowbrook Acres development, police say.

Through preliminary investigation, police learned the 27-year-old victim and her five-year-old daughter had been asleep in a bedroom when the woman awoke to a stranger choking her. Police say she fought the attacker until her daughter woke up and possibly scared off the intruder. According to troopers, the suspect then fled the residence in an unknown direction. At that point the victim and her daughter went to a neighbor's house and contacted police.

EMS providers transported the woman to a local hospital, where she was treated and released with non-life-threatening injuries, troopers say. The child was not injured in the assault.

The suspect is described as a male, approximately 6-feet tall, wearing a dark colored baseball cap and sweatshirt.

If anyone has any information in reference to this incident, they are asked to contact Detective K. Anderson at 302-741-2815.

    Progress on Bowers Beach Drainage Project at Mercy of the Tides

    Wrapping up the major replacement of a drainage system beneath an oft-flooded in Bowers Beach has proved to be a slower process than some town officials and neighbors have hoped for.

    A new drainage pipe has recently replaced a smaller and older one beneath Hubbard Avenue, a frequent spot for flooding after heavy rain. The system is intended to help flood waters disperse more quickly into the Murderkill River.
