Three Kent County teens have been arrested for their involvement in an Oct. 24 home invasion in Frankford where a 35-year-old man was assaulted.
According to the Delaware State Police, Bridget M. Walls, 17, and her boyfriend Collin L. Vincent, 19, both of Harrington, as well as Jacob T. Davis, 19, of Magnolia have been charged with first degree robbery, home invasion, first degree burglary, wearing a disguise in the commission of a felony and second degree conspiracy.
Police said the incident occurred around 2:30 a.m. on Oct. 24, after the victim met Walls at the Royal Farms in Felton and took her back to his apartment in Frankford where they began drinking alcohol. Police said unbeknownst to the victim, Vincent and Davis had followed the two and remained in contact with Walls via text messaging. Police said at one point, Walls unlocked the front door while the victim was in the bathroom, allowing Vincent and Davis to enter the residence. Police said the two men covered their faces with their shirts and began punching and kicking the victim in the face, and at one point pistol whipping him with a BB gun. Police said after rummaging through the victim’s pockets, the suspects removed his wallet with an undisclosed amount of cash, keys and a cell phone before all three left the residence.
Police said Walls and Vincent were arrested that afternoon in Harrington, while Davis was arrested that evening in Woodside. Walls was committed to Stevenson House Detention Center in Milford on $7,800 secured bond, while Vincent and Collins were committed to Sussex Correctional Institution in lieu of $71,500 cash bond and $8,000 secured bond, respectively.
Cpl. Gary Fournier would not specify whether the victim will face charges for providing alcohol to a minor in his home. Fournier said the investigation into the incident is ongoing.
