Two suspects have been arrested in connection with a home invasion in Magnolia Wednesday night.  Delaware State Police were called to Whispering Lane just after 8pm for a home invasion.  While police were responding a trooper spotted a suspect matching the description of the suspect running from the area.  Police arrested 24 year old Paul Dixon of Magnolia.  A search of the area led to 18 year old Terry McIntire of Seaford hiding in the bushes.  Police say the two entered the unsecured home through the front door with their faces covered and confronted a 41 year old male resident and demanded property.  The victim turned over a cell phone – then the suspects confronted the 71 year old male home owner and took pill bottles and his wallet.  Both suspects were armed – one with a stun gun – the other with an airsoft gun that resembled a semi-automatic handgun.  They face multiple charges and are being held in default of bond.
