Dover Police Searching For Six Armed Home Invasion Suspects

The Dover Police Department is investigating a home invasion that occurred in the Capital Green neighborhood on Sunday morning. Between 1:00AM-1:20AM, six unknown black male suspects entered the front door of a residence in the 400 Block of East Water Street with handguns, demanding items, according to M/Cpl. Mark Hoffman, Public Information Officer. The suspects ransacked the residence while inside.
