DOVER, Del.- An armed home invasion, robbery, and sexual assault case has ended with a guilty plea and prison sentence for a Dover man.

The Delaware Department of Justice on Friday said Mahdi Wilson, 26, pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree robbery, home invasion, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, and first-degree unlawful sexual contact in Kent County Superior Court.

Prosecutors said that in February 2018, Wilson and a second suspect forced their way into a unit at the Woodcrest Apartments in Dover at gunpoint in order to rob a man who lived there. Once inside, Wilson and the second intruder had the man and his roommate lie on the floor while they ransacked the apartment.

According to prosecutors, Wilson found a third victim, a friend of the occupants, in the bedroom and took her to another room in the apartment where he sexually assaulted her. 

A Superior Court judge sentenced Wilson to 20 years in prison, followed by home confinement or work release and two years of probation. Wilson must also register as a Tier 3 sex offender. The second suspect was never identified.
