Felton- The Delaware State Police are investigating a robbery of a Sal’s Pizza delivery driver that occurred last evening, according to Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Melissa Jaffe.

Jaffe said the incident occurred on March 28, 2020, at approximately 8:01 p.m., when Troopers were dispatched to the area of the Goose Creek, Felton, in reference to a report of a robbery. Upon arrival, Troopers met with a 26-year-old male victim. The victim advised that he had just completed a delivery on Midstate Road and was traveling westbound, back toward Felton, when he observed a dark-colored, newer model Kia Optima disabled on the side of the road, with the hood up and hazard lights on. As he approached the vehicle, a female began waving him down, as if she needed help. The victim pulled over in front of the vehicle and attempted to assist her with the battery issue that she claimed to have.

A male exited the Optima, and walked up behind the victim while pressing an unknown hard object to his back. The male suspect demanded everything from the victim’s pockets. The victim complied with the suspect’s demands and turned over his wallet, cell phone, and an undisclosed amount of cash. The suspects fled westbound on Midstate Road, before turning southbound onto Canterbury Road toward Milford.

The suspects were described as a white female in her early 20’s and a black male.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact Troop 3, Detective Blomquist at 302-697-4454. Information may also be provided by calling Delaware crime stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333 or via the internet at http://www.delaware.crimestoppersweb.com.
