Bridgeville- The Delaware State Police are investigating a home invasion that occurred yesterday afternoon in the Walkers Meadows Development.
The incident occurred at approximately 1:33 p.m., on Thursday, September 13, 2018 when Troopers were dispatched to a residence in the 20000 block of Millstone Lane for a report of a home invasion. Upon arrival, Troopers learned that a 56-year-old female resident was home with her two grandchildren under the age of 3, when she heard a knock at the door. Upon answering the door, three subjects pushed their way into the residence and forced the victim and children into a bathroom, where they tied up the victim.
The suspects proceeded to ransack the residence, and removed an undisclosed amount of cash and a cell phone prior to fleeing the scene. No injures were reported as a result of this incident.
The suspects were described as three males wearing masks, and fleeing the area in a gray or silver colored Lexus cross-over type SUV with an unknown New York registration. (pictured)
