Bridgeville home invasion under investigaton

BRIDGEVILLE, De. – An investigation is underway for a home invasion that took place Thursday afternoon in the Walkers Meadows Development, in Bridgeville.

Around 1:33 PM, Delaware State Police troopers were called to respond to a residence in the 20000 block of Millstone lane for a reported home invasion. When Troopers arrived, they learned that a 56-year-old female resident was at home with her two young grandchildren when she heard a knock at the door. When she answered the door, three subjects pushed their way into the home and forced the victim and children into a bathroom, tying up the victim.
