Police hope a sketch they released Wednesday helps them track down a woman who along with two men assaulted a man inside his home over the weekend.
New Castle County Police say interviews with a Lynnfield, Del. resident attacked inside his home helped them form the sketch.
According to investigators, the woman and her accomplices were armed with handguns when they burst into the man’s Ridgeland Road home around 10 p.m. Sunday and demanded money before roughing him up.
The suspects then stole undisclosed items before fleeing the home, possibly driving off in a light-colored sedan.
After the assault the victim called police. Investigators searched the area around the home but couldn’t find the suspects.
A composite sketch of the woman allegedly involved shows a woman wearing a hood with a light complexion who stands between 5-foot-8-inches and 5-foot-10-inches tall and weighs around 130 to 150 pounds.
Her most noticeable attribute is a gap between her front teeth.
New Castle County Police asked anyone who recognizes this woman or knows anything about the crime to call Det .B. Shahan at 302-395-8110 or by email. Tips can also be made anonymously online, by texting the keyword NCCPD and the tip to 847411 or by calling Crimestoppers at 800-TIP-3333.
