WOODSIDE, Del. - Police are searching for four suspects wanted for a home invasion outside Woodside late Thursday night.

According to Delaware State Police, three men forcefully entered a home in the unit block of Four Acre Drive at around 11:35 p.m. Troopers said the suspects were armed with handguns and demanded cash and cellphones from the 25-year-old man, 26-year-old woman and 19-year-old woman who were home at the time.

Police said the victims complied, and the suspects took off in a car parked outside, driven by a fourth suspect. The car, described as a silver, four-door vehicle, then headed northbound on Upper King Road.

According to police, the three suspects who entered the home were all described as black men wearing masks over their faces. No description is available for the driver of the getaway car.

Detectives believe this was not a random act and the victims may have been targeted. Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective M. Weinstein at (302) 698-8443. Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, via the internet at www.delaware.crimestoppersweb.com, or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword "DSP."
