The incident occurred around 11:30 p.m. Jan. 2 at a residence in the 30000 block of Parsons Road when two male subjects arrived at the house and knocked on the door.  According to state police spokesman Cpl. Gary Fournier, a 60-year-old man answered the door and allowed the two men to enter since he knew one of them.  While the three were talking in the kitchen area, the men suddenly began punching the victim to the point where he was knocked unconscious.

The two then removed a cell phone from the counter and ran out of the house before leaving the scene in an unknown type vehicle.

The following morning, the 60-year-old man and his roommates located a small backpack in the front lawn near the porch which contained the identification of one of the suspects.  The man contacted Delaware State Police to report the incident and the turn over the backpack.

Troopers located Charles E. Daisey Jr., 40, of Georgetown, at the Sea Esta Motel in Long Neck and took him into custody without incident.  A second suspect, who was only described as a black male, has not been located or identified.

Mr. Daisey was charged with robbery first degree, home invasion, conspiracy second degree, third-degree assault and theft. He was arraigned and committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $90,000 cash bond.

Anyone with any information in reference to this incident or the identity of the second suspect is asked to contact Detective D. Cathell at 302-752-3793.  Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, via the internet at, or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword “DSP.”
