Maryland woman accused of twice trying to rob Delaware home

FRANKFORD, Del. (AP) — A Maryland woman is accused of trying to rob the same Delaware home twice.

News outlets report 42-year-old Maureen E. Gray was arrested last week on charges including second-degree burglary and attempted theft.

State police say Gray entered the unlocked Frankford home late Thursday while two people were still inside it. They say a woman in the home saw Gray hiding behind a bathroom door and screamed for the homeowner. The three fought and Gray suffered minor injuries.

Police say responding officers found the homeowner holding Gray at gunpoint. Police say the same home was robbed the previous week. They say a housesitter heard an exterior alarm going off, checked the property and discovered Gray. Police say the housesitter told Gray to leave and later discovered property was missing.
