LEWES, Del. – Police arrested two people, including a juvenile, for breaking into a Lewes home Sunday night.

Shortly after 10 p.m., troopers responded to a home on Pecan Court for a report that multiple subjects were trying to break into a residence. The homeowner was reportedly not home at the time but saw on his security camera that there was a man holding a large knife and walking around the screened-in porch area. Troopers arrived at the scene and found that a screen door and screen window had been cut, and a glass window had been shattered.

Troopers and State Police Aviation established a perimeter, and the homeowner reported that he could see two suspects inside of his garage. A short time later, two men reportedly walked out of the front door wearing face coverings. Troopers tried to detain one of the suspects at the scene, but he physically resisted arrest. The 17-year-old was taken into custody following a brief struggle, and troopers found a large knife concealed in his pocket. The second suspect, identified as 18-year-old Nathan Lagimoniere, was taken into custody.

Lagimoniere was charged with second degree burglary, wearing a disguise during the commission of a felony, second degree conspiracy, and criminal mischief. He was held at SCI on an $18,100 cash bond.
