Pedestrian Robbed By Three Men

Georgetown – The Delaware State Police are investigating a robbery of a pedestrian as he was walking through County Seat Garden Development, according to Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Gary Fournier.


Fournier said that the incident occurred Tuesday November 22, 2016 at approximately 10:40 p.m., as a 35-year old male pedestrian was walking westbound on Garden Circle in the area of Maple Street.  A passenger car pulled up behind him and three subjects exited the car and approached him.

One of the suspects struck the victim with an unknown object and demanded his money before the victim attempted to fight back, according to Fournier.  Once one of the suspects forced him to the ground, they removed his wallet containing an undisclosed amount of cash and fled in the vehicle.  The victim sustained minor injuries but refused on-scene medical attention.

The suspects were described as a white male with a beard, a Hispanic male, and a black male, all wearing dark colored clothingPa.  It is unknown if the suspects were armed.  The vehicle was only described as an older model passenger car, possibly an Oldsmobile or Buick.
