Three “Men” Rob Woman And Dog

a woman who was walking in the Paris Villa development early Thursday evening, according to Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Gary Fournier.

Fournier said the incident occurred around 8:40 p.m. Thursday May 18, 2017 as a 57-year-old female was walking in the area of Plum Drive and Apple Run with her dog when she was approached by three male subjects.

One of the suspects ripped open a plastic bag that the victim was carrying containing her money, according to Fournier. Once the undisclosed amount of money fell to the ground, the suspects picked it up and fled northbound on Apple Run, said Fournier. The victim and her dog were uninjured.

The three suspects were described two black males and one white male, 5’08-5’10” tall, wearing all dark colored clothing. The three were not reported to be armed with any type of weapons during the incident.

Unlike other news organizations, First State Update hasn’t put up a paywall. We want to provide the news to as many readers as possible.

Our readership has grown far beyond our greatest expectations in such a short period of time.

In less than two years we have become one of Delaware most popular and  trusted news sources.

To keep this thing firing on all cylinders we need to do some serious updates and upgrades to our equipment.

That takes cash. Digital advertising revenue has declined in recent years as advertisers have begun to pay less for advertising and readers have begun using adblocker software.

Rather than promote ads that don’t get clicked on we are increasingly removing ads in favor of reader funded support.

If just a fraction of First State Update’s readers pitched in a couple of bucks we would be set for a while. You can support First State Update for as little as $1.
