Troopers Investigating Armed Home Invasion In Dover

Dover – The Delaware State Police are investigating a home invasion robbery that occurred at approximately 11:53 p.m., Saturday, December 28, 2019, at a residence located in the unit block of Kentwood Drive, Dover, according to Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Michael Austin.

Austin said the initial investigation has determined that a 25-year-old male was alone in the residence when he heard a knock at the door. Assuming that it was his roommate who had forgotten his house keys, the victim opened the door. As he opened the door two male suspects armed with handguns forcibly entered the residence and demanded cash. One suspect ordered the victim to the ground at gunpoint and then proceeded to physically assault him, while the second suspect searched the residence.

After obtaining miscellaneous property and an undisclosed amount of cash, both suspects fled in an unknown direction.

The suspects could only be described as black males wearing all dark clothing and in possession of handguns.

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to contact Detective J. Buzzuro of the Troop 3 Criminal Investigations Unit by calling (302) 698-8502.
