Two suspects wanted by Delaware State Police after Magnolia home invasion

MAGNOLIA – Two men, allegedly armed with handguns, are wanted by the Delaware State Police after a home invasion occurred in Magnolia early Sunday morning.

The investigation began at approximately 3:40 a.m. May 1 after troopers were told to respond to a residence located in the 100 block of Woodville Drive for the report of a home invasion.

Upon their arrival, troopers learned that two male suspects had allegedly forced entry into the home which was occupied by two adults and one juvenile. The suspects, who were both said to be armed with unknown make and model handguns, confronted the residents and demanded money and drugs from them.

The adult female victim was then struck by one of the suspects, sustaining a minor injury to her head. All three victims were then detained as the suspects proceeded to rummage through the home, removing an undisclosed amount of cash and cell phones. The suspects fled from the home in an unknown direction.

The two suspects were described as black males dressed in all dark clothing and wearing masks covering their faces. One of the suspects was 6’00” tall while the second was 5’04”-5’08” tall. They were both armed with handguns. There is no further physical or clothing description available.

This incident remains under investigation by the Delaware State Police. As to jeopardize the integrity of the investigation, specific details will not be released at this time.
