Troopers Investigate a Home Invasion – Southeast Bridgeville

Bridgeville, DE – Troopers are investigating a home invasion that occurred southeast of Bridgeville early this morning.

The incident occurred at approximately 1:55 a.m. Wednesday July 13, 2016 in the 11000 block of Iris Field Lane, as two males forcefully entered the residence that was occupied by a 33-year-old male. The suspects, who were reportedly armed with unknown type handguns, demanded cash.  When the victim informed the two suspects he didn’t have any money, he was struck in the back of the head with a gun and then kicked while on the ground.  The suspects then removed an undisclosed amount of cash and fled the residence in an unknown direction.  The male victim initially refused medical attention, but was later transported to an area hospital by a relative where he was treated and released for non-life-threatening injuries.

The suspects were both described as black males wearing masks over their faces (No further physical or clothing description available). They were armed with unknown types of handguns.

Detectives have determined through preliminary interviews and investigation that this was not a random act and believe the victim may have been targeted in the home invasion.
