2 Arrested in Magnolia Home Invasion

Posted: Jul 12, 2018 11:51 AM Updated:

MAGNOLIA, Del.- Delaware State Police have arrested two people in connection with a home invasion that occurred Wednesday night in Magnolia.

Troopers were dispatched to Whispering Lane for a reported home invasion at around 8:15 p.m. Before they got to the scene, they saw a man matching the description of one of the suspects fleeing the area. That man was identified by police as 24-year-old Paul Dixon III, of Magnolia. He was arrested without incident, police said.

With help from Harrington police, authorities searched the area and found and arrested the second suspect, 18-year-old Terry R. McIntire Jr., of Seaford, who was reportedly hiding in thick briers, according to police.

Dixon and McIntire allegedly wore disguises and entered an unlocked home and confronted a 41-year-old male resident, according to police. Dixon was said to be armed with a stun gun and McIntire apparently had an airsoft gun when they demanded the man to turn over his cellphone, police said.

Troopers said the men then continued to the rear bedroom, where they confronted the homeowner, a 71-year-old man. McIntire allegedly pointed the airsoft gun at the man before taking pill bottles and a wallet, police said.

Both Dixon and McIntire were charged with two counts of first-degree, Home Invasion, Aggravated Menacing, Wearing a Disguise During the Commission of a Felony, second-degree Conspiracy, Resisting Arrest and Carrying a Concealed Dangerous Instrument. They were committed to the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on a $72,000 secured bond each.
