Sistillio Popo,50, of Delaware is being held on a five million dollar bond in a Wilmington-area prison while he awaits extradition to Maryland.

Popo faces 26 felony charges including three counts of attempted murder and armed robbery.

According to police the suspect and a unidentified accomplice are accused of entering a home in the 300 block of Locust Point Road with handguns.

The suspect threatened the victim’s life, struck him with the weapon and fired one round in the home.

The suspects fled after obtaining cash, firearms and other objects from the home.

While exiting the community the suspects fired serval rounds at two neighbors who attempted to stop them from fleeing.

The neighbors were able to provide vehicle and suspect descriptions, leading investigators to Popo and the getaway car.

Popo was arrested without incident, investigators found the handgun used in the home invasion and other items taken from the home.

The incident is still under investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Maryland State Police North East Barrack.
