Del. State Police Investigating Home Invasion in Harbeson

Posted: Updated:

HARBESON, Del.- Delaware State Police are investigating a home invasion that happened Monday evening in Harbeson.

It happened at around 7:30 p.m. at a home in the 22000 block of Danfield Drive.

A resident told troopers that a white woman with pink hair knocked on the door and said she had run out of gas.

According to police, the resident said two unknown men with covered faces immediately entered the home with black semi-automatic handguns. 

A woman who was sitting on the couch tried to call 911 but one of the robbers reportedly grabbed her phone, according to police.

The second robber proceeded into the back of the home, where he encountered a man and struck him over the head with a gun and demanded money. 

The man handed the robbers an undisclosed amount of cash, according to police. 

One of the robbers and the man ended up outside the home. 

Meantime, the other robber remained inside and was arguing with one of the women who was preventing him from entering a bathroom where another woman had locked herself inside. 

Police said that woman was able to escape the home, along with two children.

The man who had been hit ran back inside the home and locked the door, according to police.

Troopers said the robber who hit him, proceeded to kick in the door and went inside where he shot at a wall. 

Both robbers then fled in an unknown direction.

The victim who was hit over the head sustained minor injures and was treated at a local hospital. 

There were no other injures reported as a result of this incident.

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact Troop 4, Major Crimes Unit, Detective C. Simpson at 302-856-5850.
