NCCPD Investigates a Home Invasion in Lynnfield
New Castle County Police are currently investigating a home invasion that occurred last night in the community of Lynnfield in Wilmington, DE.
On Sunday (12/1) night at 10:27 p.m., County Police responded to the unit block of Ridgeland Road for a reported home invasion. When officers arrived, the 22 year old victim indicated that earlier that evening several unknown suspects, who were armed with handguns, entered his residence and confronted him as they demanded his property. The victim was then assaulted prior to the suspects taking his property and fleeing from the home. Police learned they possibly left the area in a light colored sedan with tinted windows.
The suspects were described as a light skinned black female, approximately 5’07” tall, 150 pounds, who was wearing a dark hoodie and armed with a handgun, and two black males, one of which was armed with a handgun and had his face concealed, and the description of the other is unknown.
Assisting officers responded and checked the victim’s home for any possible suspects, as well as the surrounding area and neighboring communities, but were unsuccessful in their efforts in locating them.

Saturday is our semi annual garage sale with a rain date of Sunday. Let’s make some room for the upcoming gift givng season!
If anyone wondered where your Civic Association dues go, we had a great example of our community spirit this Saturday. Thanks to our enthusiastic Activities Chair, Chastity Rouse, we had games, face painting, a moon bounce, and a very nice selection of goodies from a food truck. There were doubters saying we have never done this before, but although it has been many years, there have been street parties and Halloween parades in the past, but nothing that I can remember with catered food. So we can thank the weather gods for the nice day for our event, and that we didn’t have to use our money for snow plowing last winter. Maybe if it doesn’t snow (much) this winter, we can throw another party next year! Go South Graylyn Crest!
Get to know your neighbors! Come to the Park Saturday.
We are honored to have some special guest coming to our upcoming meeting on October 7th.
South Graylyn’s own Ruth Price, Deputy Public Advocate for Delaware will be joining us along with David Bonar. The advocate’s office represents customers of regulated utilities in rate cases before the PSC, including those involving electricity, natural gas, water, wastewater, basic cable television and landline telephones. These are the people on our side when it comes to rate hikes on our utilities. Make sure to stop by and say hello on the 7th
