State police say two occurred, one in Felton and one in Dover.
The Delaware State Police are investigating two home invasions earlier this morning.
The first occurred on Tuesday, Feb.13, at 12:23 a.m. when troopers responded to the 100 block of Sandalwood Drive, Felton for a reported home invasion.
Upon arrival, contact was made with a 22-year-old male resident and his 22-year-old girlfriend, who advised they were awakened by a loud noise and heard subjects entering their residence. Further investigation revealed that four masked subjects displaying handguns had forced entry into the residence through the front door, demanding drugs and money. The suspects eventually took an electronic game console, a small safe and a wallet prior to fleeing.
Also present was a two-year-old child. The two 22-year-old victims along with the child were not injured.
The second incident Tuesday was at 1:36 a.m. when troopers responded to the unit block of Kentwood Drive, Dover for a reported home invasion.
Upon arrival, contact was made with a 58-year-old female resident and her 32-year-old daughter who advised that three masked suspects in which at least one was armed with a handgun had forced entry through the front door. The suspects had taken drug paraphernalia and cigarettes prior to fleeing. Both victims were not injured.
The suspects in both incidences could only be described as males, wearing dark colored clothing, with masks covering their faces and displaying firearms.
