REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. – Delaware State Police arrested a third suspect in connection with a Rehoboth Beach home invasion.

Police say it happened just after midnight Tuesday at a home on Washington Street.

According to police, a 27-year-old male victim and a woman, later identified as 23-year-old Cory Bynaker,  were inside of the home watching a movie when two male suspects entered.

Troopers say the men demanded money and threatened the victim with a hammer. The victim cooperated, and the suspects then fled the residence on foot.

Police later learned Bynaker gave investigating troopers a fake name and was wanted by the Smyrna Police Department. Through further investigation, police determined she knew the two suspects and was involved in the home invasion.

The male suspects were identified as 36-year-old Christopher Bacon of Smyrna and 24-year-old Mark  Jenkins Jr. of Clayton. Bynaker and Bacon were arrested earlier this week, and obtained a warrant for Jenkins. On Friday, Smyrna Police arrested Jenkins.

Bynaker is charged with Robbery 1st-Degree, Possession of a Deadly Weapon during the Commission of a Felony, Home Invasion, Burglary 1st-degree, Aggravated Menacing, Wearing a Disguise during the Commission of a Felony, Conspiracy 2nd-Degree, Terroristic Threatening, two counts of theft and Criminal Impersonation.  She was committed to the Delores J. Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution in lieu of $100,000 cash bond.

Bacon and Jenkins are facing charges of  Robbery 1st-degree, Possession of a Deadly Weapon during the Commission of a Felony, Home Invasion, Burglary 1st-degree, Aggravated Menacing, Wearing a Disguise During the Commission of a Felony, Conspiracy 2nd-Degree, Terroristic Threatening, and two counts of theft. Both are being held on bond at the  Sussex Correctional Institution.
