The Delaware State Police are investigating a home invasion that occurred in Seaford early Wednesday morning.
The preliminary investigation has determined the incident occurred around 4:15 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 25, when troopers responded to the 11,000 block of Orange Blossom Lane, in Seaford, for a reported home invasion. An unknown male entered the residence and confronted two female victims, who had been sleeping in the living room, before grabbing one of them and dragging her through the residence while displaying a handgun.
The suspect then rifled through the residence and took cell phones and a video game system. As the victims attempted to exit the residence, they encountered the suspect, who then fired his weapon in an unknown direction before fleeing the scene. The victims were not injured.
The suspect was described as a black male between 5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet tall and 150 and 160 pounds. He was wearing dark clothing.
