Milton – The Delaware State Police are investigating a home invasion that occurred just outside the limits of Milton.
The incident occurred around 7:30 p.m. Friday December 9, 2016 when a 49-year-old female was sitting in the living room of her house located in the 14000 block of Russell Street with her one month old grandson. The female heard some noise just outside her bedroom window and when she went to investigate, she observed a subject attempting to gain entry by tampering with the air conditioner unit. The female victim called 9-1-1 to report the incident and when she returned to the living room, two suspects forcefully entered through the front door and confronted her. They demanded her money and when she informed them she didn’t know where any money was located, one of the suspects pulled out a gun and pointed it at her. She then turned over an undisclosed amount of cash before the two fled the house and entered an unknown make and model passenger car. The victim and her grandson were uninjured in the incident.
The first suspect was described as a male, 5’08” – 5’10” tall, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, and a black mask over his face (No further physical or clothing description available). Armed with unknown type handgun.
The second suspect was described as a male, 6’00” – 6’02” tall, wearing a red hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, and a black mask over his face (No further physical or clothing description available).
