DELPHOS — A Delphos couple were injured in a home invasion assault that occurred Saturday morning.
David and Dianna Allemeier of 209 S. Pierce St. in Delphos were both taken to St. Rita’s Medical Center in Lima for treatment of injuries received when a man gained entry to their home and reportedly assaulted them.
Delphos Police were first called out at 6:05 a.m. Saturday on a report of a suspicious person in the 300 block of Jackson Street who was knocking on doors and then walking away. However, while en route to that call, officers were informed that a man had been injured and was bleeding in the 200 block of Pierce Street.
When officers arrived on the scene, they found Allemeier bleeding from an injury to his neck. The Delphos resident said he received the injury from a man who had gained entry into his home.
Officers approached the residence and found the back door unlocked and a lot of blood at the scene. The home was secured and a K-9 and Crime Scene Unit sought from the Allen County Sheriff’s Office.
Allemeier then said his wife was still in the house and officers then entered and found Mrs. Allemeier, who was also injured, in the bedroom area of the residence.
After the Allemeiers were transported to the hospital, a K-9 search was made of the area, and the house was processed by an Allen County sheriff’s deputy.
No information was released on whether items were taken from the Allemeier house.
Police are currently seeking a young, skinny white male with black hair, possibly wearing cutoff shorts. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Delphos Police Department or Allen County Sheriff’s Office.
The investigation is continuing, with no further information forthcoming at this time.
