MAGNOLIA, Del.- Troopers are investigating a home invasion that happened early Sunday morning in Magnolia. 
 
Troopers responded to a home on the 100 block of Woodville Drive around 3:40 a.m. for the report of a home invasion. 

According to Delaware State Police, two men forced their way into the home which was occupied by two adults and one child. 

Police say the suspects, who were both armed with unknown make and model handguns, confronted the residents and demanded money and drugs from them. Police say a suspect then hit one of the victims, and she sustained a minor injury to her head. 

Police say all three victims were then detained,  as the suspects proceeded to rummage through the home. They took off with cash and cell phones. 
 
The two suspects were described as black men dressed in all dark clothing and wearing masks covering their faces. One of the suspects was 6’00” tall while the second was 5’04”-5’08” tall. They were both armed with handguns. There is no further physical or clothing description available.
 
This incident remains under investigation by the Delaware State Police. So as to jeopardize the integrity of the investigation, specific details will not be released at this time.
 
If anyone has any information in reference to this incident, they are asked to contact Troop 3 at 302-697-8495.
