Townsend – The Delaware State Police are attempting to locate 28 year old Daniel J. Ford of Warwick, MD, who is wanted on multiple felonies, to include weapon related offenses, stemming from a home invasion that occurred late Monday night.

On Monday, March 11, 2019 at approximately 11:09 p.m., Troopers responded to the 200 block of Sawmill Rd., Townsend in reference to a domestic related incident. The initial investigation determined that Ford arrived at the residence and became involved in a verbal altercation with a female acquaintance, outside the residence. He then encountered a male subject and pointed a handgun at him. A brief struggle ensued between Ford and the male victim over the weapon but Ford was able to retain possession of it.

Ford then made forcible entry into the residence in pursuit of the male. The male victim was able to flee the residence followed by Ford but there was no further interaction between the two. Once outside the residence, Ford punctured the tires of the male’s vehicle with a knife, before fleeing the scene in a red, unknown make and model vehicle.

None of the victim’s, to include two children that were in the residence at the time of the incident, sustained any injuries.

Ford is described as a white male, 5’4″ tall, weighing 155 lbs., with brown hair and blue eyes. (NO PHOTOGRAPH AVAILABLE)
