Authorities say a man broke into a Delaware home and stole a pair of women’s underwear.
Delaware State Police say two women heard an unusual noise in their house early Friday and barricaded themselves in a bedroom. Police say after someone tried to get in the room, the women escaped out the window.

Police say authorities later found 21-year-old Tyrone Jenkins-Health Jr. walking through a neighbor’s yard in possession of a pair of one of the women’s underwear. Police say Jenkins-Health told investigators he intended to make one or both of the women perform unlawful sexual acts on him.
Police say he faces charges including burglary and attempted rape. There was no number publicly listed for him and it wasn’t immediately clear Saturday whether he has an attorney.


Cops say Thomas’ little girl and little boy were in the house at the time of the murder. According to sources, Moses is the father of the boy.

The exact motive is not yet known but police call it a clear and senseless case of domestic violence and credit neighbors for stepping up with information.

“As we were standing out front, people were walking up to us and saying, ‘I know this.’ Just piece after piece as it was progressing, neighbors coming up before we even knocked on doors. That’s how in 7 and a half hours, we were able to make an arrest in this homicide,” Darby Borough Police Chief Robert Smythe said.

SOUTHWEST PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — Police are investigating an accident involving three children and a vehicle in Southwest Philadelphia.

It happened around 6 p.m. Sunday at 60th Street and Kingsessing Avenue.

Police say two girls were hit by a vehicle traveling southbound.

Neighbors who saw the accident quickly went to help. A group of people lifted the car to free one of the girls who was trapped underneath the rear wheels.

“I ran right out to help her and try to lift the car, but i couldn’t lift it myself. That’s when everyone came out and we finally got it up. She just kept telling us she thought she was going to die. We told her you’re not going to die, just breathe,” said witness Frances Jones.

The driver did stop at the scene, and a 5-year-old child in that vehicle was also injured.

All three children were taken to Children’s Hospital.

The victims struck by the car, a 9-year-old girl is in critical condition, and a 10-year-old is stable.

The child in the striking vehicle is also stable.

Police are investigating.


WYNCOTE, Pa. (WPVI) — Video shows a fight that erupted in Cheltenham High School on Wednesday morning, and it ends with a teacher being knocked to the ground, apparently unconscious.

The now-viral video shows the incident that happened around 7:30 a.m.

The video begins with two female students in a confrontation. Within moments, they begin to fight.

Not long after, two more girls can be seen fighting.

The nearly minute-long video shows the violence escalate, with the girls throwing punches and going to the ground.

At one point a teacher intervenes in an apparent attempt to break up the fight.

She was then hit in the head, apparently by accident, and falls to the ground. She remains still and does not move before the video ends. We’ve learned she was sent to the hospital.

The school district’s superintendent sent a letter to parents indicating several teachers were injured during the melee, but there was no information as to the severity of any of those injuries.

Meanwhile, we spoke with several students and parents who say that not only is fighting a lingering problem at Cheltenham High, but there were one or two more fights later Wednesday.

They say that’s in addition to at least a dozen more fights over the past four weeks.

“Around 15 I’d say, but there’s been a lot. I’ve been here four years and it’s just exponentially growing,” said senior Andrew Crosby.

“I’m surprised that it’s never been covered until finally there was video evidence of what’s going on in that building,” said parent Christopher Dean.

Repeated calls to the police and the school district by Action News were not returned.

In a earlier letter to parents, Principal Ray McFall said there was no official lockdown called, but first period was extended while police and school officials dealt the the situation.

The students involved were removed from the school, McFall said. There was no immediate word on any charges.

McFall went on to say there were additional adults in the building to monitor hallways and exterior areas, but the school is now calm and the school day is proceeded as usual.

McFall noted that counselors were available for students who need to talk about the incident.
The letter goes on to say that fighting will not be tolerated.

McFall also had strong words about those who record fights on video, saying “Those who are found to have filmed a fight will meet with swift disciplinary actions.”

“This morning’s incident, is without doubt, a gross violation of our code of conduct and therefor completely unacceptable. I ask that every single parent have a serious conversation at home this evening about student stressors and appropriate management of them; violence is never a viable option,” McFall’s statement reads.
“Students who are experiencing extreme conflict and stress must seek out an adult and deal with it appropriately in a timely manner before the stress erupts into a fight as it did this morning.”


Former NBA All-Star guard Brandon Roy was injured in a shooting over the weekend in the Los Angeles area, according to authorities.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Joseph Williams said Wednesday that Roy was one of four people shot in Compton on Saturday.

He said Roy and the three other victims were attending a party when two men walked up and opened fire without saying a word.

Williams said all four victims were shot in the upper body but suffered non-life-threatening injuries. Investigators are still trying to determine a motive for the shooting. No arrests have been made.

The Portland Trail Blazers, with whom Roy spent the majority of his career, issued a statement on Tuesday night:

“Like many others, we’re just learning of the injury suffered by former Trail Blazers player Brandon Roy in a shooting over the weekend in California. According to those reports, Brandon was wounded as a bystander but is expected to recover. Our thoughts and prayers are with Brandon and his family during this time.”

Roy played five seasons in Portland before retiring in 2011 because of ongoing trouble with his knees. He attempted a comeback in 2012 and appeared in five regular-season games for the Minnesota Timberwolves, before undergoing another knee surgery. He was released in March 2013.

Roy took over Seattle’s Nathan Hale’s boys’ basketball program in 2016 and was named the Naismith National High School Coach of the Year after leading his team to an undefeated (29-0) record during the regular season.

EAST STROUDSBURG, Pa. — Police say a Pennsylvania woman fractured her infant’s skull and tried to blame the injuries on her 6-year-old son.

Stroud Area Regional police say doctors determined the injuries to the 6-week-old were “massive” and “consistent with a punch, kick or slam.” Doctors also found evidence of past head trauma and say the boy likely will be disabled because of brain injuries.

Twenty-nine-year-old Angelica Colon is jailed on attempted homicide, aggravated assault and other charges. A public defender for the East Stroudsburg woman didn’t immediately comment on the charges Tuesday.

Police interviewed Colon after the infant was first hospitalized April 13. They say she told them her 6-year-old son grabbed the boy out of his crib then accidentally dropped him, waking her up.
