Police Search for Suspects in Home Invasion

Posted: Updated:

CAMDEN-WYOMING, Del. - Delaware State Police are searching for three suspects in a home invasion-style robbery that happened over the weekend in Camden-Wyoming, Delaware.

Police said it happened Saturday morning just before 5 am, when three suspected entered a home in the 200 block of Thicket Road. Police said one of the suspects, who was armed with a handgun and was dressed in dark clothing, went into a bedroom where he confronted a 79-year-old man and hit him with the gun. The suspect then removed money from a dresser in the bedroom, police said.

Upon hearing the noise coming from the man's room, police said a 58-year-old woman awoke and confronted a second of the three suspects who pushed a weapon against her face. All three of the suspects left the home and took off in unknown directions.

Police said both the man and the woman got minor injuries but refused medical treatment.

No description of the suspects was available as of Monday morning.

If anyone has any information in reference to this incident, they are asked to contact Detective Susan Carbine at 302-698-8444. 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."
