Bridgeville- The Delaware State Police are investigating a home invasion that occurred yesterday afternoon in the Walkers Meadows Development, according to Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Melissa Jaffe.
Jaffe said the incident occurred at approximately 1:33 p.m., on Thursday, September 13, 2018, when Troopers were dispatched to a residence in the 20000 block of Millstone Lane for a report of a home invasion. Upon arrival, Troopers learned that a 56-year-old female resident was home with her two grandchildren under the age of 3, when she heard a knock at the door. Upon answering the door, three subjects pushed their way into the residence and forced the victim and children into a bathroom, where they tied up the victim, according to Jaffe.
The suspects proceeded to ransack the residence and removed an undisclosed amount of cash and a cell phone prior to fleeing the scene. No injuries were reported as a result of this incident, said Jaffe.
The suspects were described as three males wearing masks who fled the area in a gray or silver colored Lexus cross-over type SUV with an unknown New York registration. (pictured)
