Delaware State Police investigating 2 home invasions in Kent County early Tuesday morning.

Just after midnight, a couple sleeping in their home on Sandalwood drive woke up after hearing loud noises. It was 4 masked gunmen, who demanded drugs and money from the pair. The victims gave up their video game console, a small safe, and wallet before the victims ran off.

Then, an hour later, a woman and her daughter in Dover reported 3 masked men barged in through the front door, taking drug paraphernalia and cigarettes before taking off. None of the victims in either case were harmed, suspects described as men wearing dark clothing and masks.

Anyone with information about the robberies are asked to contact State Police.
