An older couple living in a house on Cullen Street called for police assistance after two men had removed the sliding-glass door and entered the couple’s home around 4 a.m. Sunday.
Sgt. Clifford Dempsey, Dewey Beach police spokesman, says the woman was armed with a gun and threatened to shoot the men if they continued up the stairs. The men were not deterred, Sgt. Dempsey says, and the woman’s husband fought the intruders. There was a struggle in the yard when police arrived.
Sgt. Dempsey says both men were arrested and face felony charges. He said they had no recollection of the incident.
