Wilmington – Delaware State Police are investigating the armed robbery of north Wilmington Gamestop store that occurred on New Years Eve, according to Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Michael Austin.

Austin said the incident occurred at approximately 6:53 p.m., Sunday, December 31, 2017, at the Gamestop, located at 3612 Concord Pike, Wilmington, just prior to the store’s scheduled closing time of 7:00 p.m.

A subject entered the store, at which time he was greeted by an employee, a 22-year-old New Castle man, who advised him the store was about to close. The subject browsed in the store briefly before approaching a second employee, a 26-year-old Wilmington man, at the sales counter, and requested to make a purchase. The employee asked for payment, at which time the subject lifted his shirt, revealing a handgun that was tucked into his waistband, said Austin. The subject then demanded all the money from the registers, according to Austin. The employee complied by placing an undisclosed amount of cash from two separate registers into a bag, before turning it over to the subject who then fled on foot into the parking lot. Neither employee was injured as a result of the incident.

The subject was described as a black male, 35 years of age, 5’11”-6’00”, 180-200 lbs., wearing a dark head covering, black hoodie, green pants and in possession of an unknown make and model handgun.

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Troop 2 Robbery Unit at 302-365-8566.
