SEAFORD, Del.- Seaford police are asking the public's help in identifying a car believed to have been used in a weekend home invasion in which one of the suspects put a gun up to a 5-year-old girl's head and threatened to shoot her. 

Police described the vehicle as a black four-door passenger sedan with black wheels and rims.

The crime occurred just before 2 a.m. Saturday in the Seaford Meadows complex The aforementioned car was seen in the vicinity when the incident occurred, according to police.  

Seaford Police Chief Robert Kracyla said a 23-year-old woman was upstairs in her Seaford Meadows home when she heard commotion downstairs. According to the chief, a man wearing a mask and armed with a gun confronted the woman and demanded money before striking her in the head. 

Kracyla said another masked suspect grabbed the woman's 5-year-old daughter and brought her upstairs. Kracyla said that while holding a gun up to the child's head, the suspect told the mother, "Tell me where it [the money] is or I will shoot her."
