Troopers Investigate Dover Home Invasion

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. - Delaware State Police say they are investigating a home invasion and assault which occurred on Voshells Mill Star Hill Road, shortly after midnight this morning, in Dover.

According to reports, the preliminary investigation indicates that the incident occurred at approximately 12:12 AM at a residence in the first block of Voshells Mill Star Hill Road, when approximately seven to eight black males forced their way into a residence occupied by a 19-year-old male and 29-year-old male.

Once inside the residence, the suspects, with at least two armed with handguns, reportedly assaulted the victims and demanded money. The 19-year-old male victim was able to break free from the suspects and fled the residence on foot. The suspects allegedly fled the residence with an undisclosed amount of cash and property.

Police say the 29-year-old victim was transported to a local hospital and treated for minor injuries. Preliminary investigation has reportedly determined that this was not a random act and that the victims were targeted in the home invasion.

If anyone has any information in reference to this incident, they are asked to contact Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.
