FREDERICA, Del. — Delaware State Police say a third man has been arrested in a home invasion that happened last month.
Police Master Cpl. Melissa Jaffe says in a statement that U.S. Marshals arrested 39-year-old Charles L. Melvin Jr. in Milford on Wednesday. Melvin is the third man who has been charged with several offences including robbery and firearm theft following the Jan. 10 home invasion in Frederica.
Police have said the 31-year-old homeowner was treated and released from a hospital after one suspect knocked on the door and struck his head with a blunt object. Another suspect went inside and took three guns, ammunition and cash.
Police said 36-year-old Eric Garrison and 37-year old Eric Huffstutler were arrested separately last month.
It’s unclear if any of the men have lawyers.
