May 19, 2014

Police are searching for two men they say broke into a Millsboro home May 18 and robbed a resident.

Two men with bandanas over their faces entered a home at 11:30 p.m. in the 28000 block of Russell Street, said Cpl. John Day of the Delaware State Police.

Three men, ages 35, 28 and 24, and two woman, 40 and 13, were in the home.

When the men entered the home, the 35-year-old and 28-year-old men jumped out of a window; the 24-year-old was assaulted by the men, who may have discharged a weapon inside the home, Day said.

The men took money from the 24-year-old before fleeing. The 24-year-old was taken to an unspecified hospital where he was treated for a nonlife-threatening head injury.
