Search Continues For Third Suspect in Christmas Eve Home Invasion Near Frankford

Posted: Updated:

FRANKFORD, Del. - Police have arrested two people for a Christmas Eve home invasion near Frankford and are searching for a third.

According to the Delaware State Police, on Dec. 24 around 6:30 a.m., three suspects forcefully broke into a house through the front door, confronting an 18-year-old and a 19-year-old who were asleep in separate bedrooms. Police said the suspects, armed with hammers, dragged the two teenagers out of their beds and into the living room and then proceeded to search the house.

When the suspects saw car lights, police said the trio ran from the home and drove away in a silver Chevrolet Suburban. According to state troopers, they made off with a large metal grinder and an undisclosed amount of crash. The teenaged victims were not hurt.

Further investigation revealed two of the suspects' identities to be 21-year-old Theodore Wilson of Dagsboro and 38-year-old Kevin Jesneck of Ocean View, according to police. Troopers responded to Jesneck's home, where he and Wilson were taken into custody and the metal grinder that was reported stolen was found.

Police said back at Troop 4 Jesneck and Wilson were charged with home invasion, second-degree conspiracy, offensive touching and criminal mischief. They were committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution on $15,000 secured bond. No mugshots are available of them at this time.

Police say they are still working to identify the third suspect in the home invasion. Anyone has with any is asked to contact Detective M. Doughty at 302-752-3794.
