Man Suffers Serious Injuries After Being Assaulted In Glasgow

Glasgow – The Delaware State Police are investigating an assault that took place in the parking lot of a Newark area Wawa, early Wednesday morning, according to Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Michael Austin.

Austin said the incident occurred at approximately 12:50 a.m., Wednesday, May 29, 2019, in the parking lot of the Perch Creek Wawa, located at 2754 Pulaski Hwy., Newark. The 32-year-old male victim was attempting to pull into one of the gas pumps when he was cut off by a dark-colored SUV. While the victim’s vehicle was being fueled, two male suspects exited the SUV and confronted him, at which time a verbal altercation took place. The two males then began to physically assault the victim by striking him multiple times, before fleeing, said Austin. The victim was later treated at an area hospital for serious injuries to his head and face.

The suspects were described as follows:

Suspect #1: Black male, light complexion, mid 20’s, 5’6” tall, stocky build, with long curly hair.

Suspect #2: Black male, dark complexion, 5’9” tall, thin build.

The SUV was reportedly occupied by multiple other female subjects who were not actively involved in the assault.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact Trooper Whitehead at Troop 2 by calling 302-834-2620.
