Man Pistol-whipped in Lewes Home Invasion

Posted: Updated:

LEWES, Del.– Delaware State Police are looking for two suspects who pistol-whipped a man during a Thursday night home invasion in Lewes.

The incident occurred shortly after 11 p.m. at a home on the 19000 block of Ward Road. When troopers arrived, they made contact with a 61-year-old man who said that he was asleep when two men entered his home and demanded money. He told troopers that both suspects were armed with what appeared to be handguns, police said.

According to the police, the suspects physically assaulted the man and struck him in the head with a handgun. The suspects reportedly did not take any property and left the home through the front door. 

The man was taken to the hospital with minor injuries, police said. 

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Detective R. Mills with the Troop 4, Major Crimes Unit at 302-752-3800. Information may also be provided to Delaware Crime Stoppers online or by calling 1-800-TIP-3333.
