State Police Investigate Bridgeville Area Home Invasion

Bridgeville– The Delaware State Police are investigating a home invasion style robbery that occurred south of Bridgeville.

The incident occurred around 5:49 a.m., Wednesday November 9, 2016 when a male subject forcefully entered a side door to a residence located in the 2000 block of Windy Lane.  The suspect then confronted a 60-year-old male and a 42-year-old female that were asleep in the living room and demanded their cell phones and car keys.  The victims complied and turned over the items before the suspect fled the house in an unknown direction.  The two victims were uninjured in the incident.

The suspect was described as a male with a small build, wearing a mask and gloves (No further physical or clothing description). He was armed with an unknown type handgun.
