Teen Struck And Injured During Carjacking In Dover


The Dover Police Department is investigating a carjacking that occurred at Hollywood Diner Saturday evening.

The investigation began when Dover Police Department received a call for a stolen vehicle at the restaurant at 5:28 p.m. Officers responded and contacted the victim, a 17-year-old female of New York, who advised that she was sitting in the passenger seat of a running vehicle when a black male entered the driver’s seat and began to back out of the parking lot.

The victim exited the vehicle in an attempt to escape, and the vehicle continued backing up, causing the vehicle to strike the victim’s legs. The victim was transported to Bayhealth Kent Campus and treated for minor injuries. The vehicle was located unoccupied at an apartment complex in Dover shortly after the incident. The suspect is described as a black male wearing all-black clothing.
