Multiple Suspects Sought In Frederica Home Invasion

Posted: Updated:

FREDERICA, Del. - Police are looking for four or five suspects after they reportedly broke into a Frederica home earlier this month.

Delaware State Police say on December 4th, around 9:00 PM, a couple was awoken in the bedroom of their Lowber Street home, after hearing a noise, and being confronted by a suspect entering their room. According to the report, the 58-year-old male victim tried to flee, but was shot in the buttocks, before being dragged into the hallway along with his 49-year-old wife.

Police say two other suspects entered another bedroom, this one with a 21-year-old male, and a 20-year-old female, and demanded money from the two while pistol whipping the man in the head with a gun. The suspects reportedly took an undisclosed amount of cash from the victim's pockets.

Five victims in total were forced into the living room, by the suspects. The suspects reportedly took several video games, cell phones, and car keys before fleeing from the house.

The 58 and 21-year-old males were taken to Milford Memorial Hospital where they were treated and released for non-life threatening injuries. None of the other five victims were injured.

Suspect one is described as a black male, 6' - 6' 5" tall, weighting 250 - 300 pounds, last seen wearing all black clothing, and a red bandana covering the bottom of his face, armed with a rifle. Suspect two is described as a black male, 6' - 6' 3" tall, weighting 170 - 180 pounds, wearing all black clothing and a red banana covering the bottom portion of his face, armed with a handgun. Police say there were two or three other black males, also dressed in all black, at the home.
