DSP Searching For Three Suspects After Dover Home Invasion

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. - Police are looking for three suspects, after a home invasion in Dover early Monday morning.

Delaware State Police sat around 1:15 AM, they received a 911 call about three suspects forcing their way into a house on McDaniel Drive, through a back door. According to the report, once inside, the suspects confronted the 37-year-old male resident in the living room, where he was sleeping on the couch.

The victim and one of the suspects started to struggle, during which the victim was hit in the back of the head with a handgun, causing a round to be fired into the ceiling of the home. Police say the three suspects then fled, without taking anything from the home. The suspects are only described as three males last seen wearing dark colored clothing and black masks, one armed with a handgun.

The victim was taken to Kent General Hospital for treatment, and later released. Three children, aged between 9 and 12-years-old, were reportedly home at the time of the incident, but weren't hurt or contacted by the suspects. 

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact Detective M. Csapo at 302-741-2810 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333. Tips can also be submitted to the DSP Mobile Crime App, texting DSP to CRIMES (274637), or by visiting the TipSubmit website.
