Frederica-The Delaware State Police are investigating a home invasion that occurred early this morning, according to Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Melissa Jaffe.

Jaffe said the incident occurred on January 29, 2020, at approximately 1:12 a.m., when Troopers were dispatched to a residence in the 100 block of Maple Drive in Frederica, for a report of a home invasion.

Upon arrival, Troopers met with a 41-year-old female resident who advised that three unknown subjects armed with long guns kicked in her front door. One suspect held the female and her 42-year-old boyfriend at gunpoint.

This suspect took possession of the victims’ phones to hinder them from calling 911, while the other suspects began ransacking the residence in search of money, said Jaffe. The three suspects eventually fled the residence leaving the phones behind and without obtaining any property. The victims were not injured as a result of this incident.

Two suspects were described as thin, dark-complected black males, approximately 5’10”-6’00” tall, wearing dark clothing and a mask over their faces. The third suspect was described as a stockier, dark-complected black male who was shorter than the other two suspects and was also wearing dark clothing and a mask.

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact Troop 3, Major Crimes Unit, Detective R. Wright at (302) 697-4454.
