Delaware police seek 2 masked suspects in home invasion


GREENWOOD, Delaware — Delaware State Police say they're looking for two masked suspects who broke into a Greenwood home, pushed a woman to the ground and may have held a weapon to her head.

Police say the 44-year-old woman was housesitting for a friend when she heard someone kicking the front door and breaking a window Sunday morning.

When the woman opened the door, police say the two masked suspects pushed her down and held an object to the back of her head. They took her purse and fled.

Police say they can't confirm the sex of the suspects but say that they were wearing white masks and dark clothes. The woman couldn't see what they held to her head. She was not injured.
