SALISBURY, Md. - A DNA match has allowed Salisbury police to make an arrest for a home invasion that happened more than a year ago, but two suspects are still on the run.

The Salisbury Police Department said Thursday that detectives were notified back on May 13 that DNA from the crime scene was positively identified as belonging to 24-year-old Marquel Dijon Brumskin of Salisbury.

According to police, Brumskin was arrested Wednesday and charged with home invasion, conspiracy to commit home invasion, burglary, assault, armed robbery, robbery, false imprisonment, reckless endangerment, malicious destruction of property, use of a firearm during commission of a violent crime and having a handgun on his person.

The charges stem from an incident that happened on April 28, 2015. Salisbury police say officers were called just after 5 a.m. to a home in the 400 block of Patterson Avenue for a reported home invasion and robbery.

According to police, the victims stated that three suspects had forced their way inside, and one had a semi-automatic handgun. Police said further investigation revealed the suspects had tied one of the victim's hands with zipper ties, while another demanded cash. Police said the victims turned over an undisclosed amount of money, and the victims ran away. No one was hurt.

The DNA police collected was from the zipper ties used to tie one of the victim's hands. Police say they are still searching for two other suspects, as well as the gun involved in the incident. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Salisbury Police Department at (410) 548-3165 or Crime Solvers at (410) 548-1776.

Crime Solvers is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to the arrest of the remaining suspects.
