Three people were arrested after police say they were involved in a January home invasion in Dover.
Delaware State Police says on Monday, 22-year-old Treyon Craig was arrested on a traffic stop in connection with the home invasion. Police say two other suspects, 23-year-old Arshawon Brown and 21-year-old Tianna Scott, were arrested in March. Authorities say Scott was taken into custody while at the Court of Common Pleas on an unrelated manner, and Brown was arrested by the Middletown Police Department.
Law enforcement reports that the suspects were involved in a home invasion that happened in the 1300 block of South Little Creek Road. Troopers say the 35-year-old victim reported that he agreed over the phone to meet a woman in reference to purchasing an iPhone. The victim reportedly met the woman at the agreed upon location in a parking lot. Police say the woman entered the man's vehicle to discuss the purchase of the phone. Authorities say the victim then told the woman that his money was at his residence at which time the two of them drove to his house.
After exiting the vehicle, DSP says the man was approached by two men with guns and demanding money. According to the report, the victim was forced inside of his home and the two male suspects ransacked a bedroom. Troopers report that the victim was then forced back into his vehicle at gunpoint. Authorities say the suspects then proceeded to drive the victim around demanding to know the location of the money.
Investigators say the suspects eventually returned to the Dover residence and forced the victim back inside of his home. Police say the suspects stole several items before fleeing the scene.
Scott was charged with robbery first degree and conspiracy second degree. The Harrington woman was released on after posting $22,000 secured bond.
Brown and Craig, both of Harrington, were charged with home invasion, robbery first degree, unlawful imprisonment first degree, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, conspiracy second degree, wearing a disguise during the commission of a felony, and malicious interference emergency communications and intentionally prevent or hinder.
Brown was committed to the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on $189,250 secured bond. Craig was turned over to the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on $193,000 cash only bond.
