The Delaware State Police are currently investigating the strong arm robbery of a 76 year old man which occurred at the Delaware State Fairgrounds.

The preliminary investigation has determined the incident occurred on Saturday, September 17, 2016, at approximately 3:10 p.m., as troopers responded the Delaware State Fairgrounds, Green lot, 18500 South DuPont Highway, Harrington for a strong arm robbery. Upon arrival troopers found the suspect Brandon Givens, 30 of Seaford, detained by good Samaritans. Givens was placed under arrest by responding troopers. The victim, a 76 year old man of Denton Maryland, was contacted at the Green lot where the Wilson’s Auction (Mid-Atlantic Equipment Auction) was being held. The victim was a volunteer for the Burrsville Ruritan Club selling food and beverages from a cart at the auction as a fundraiser for the club. Givens quickly appeared behind the victim and grabbed cash from the victim’s hand and attempted to run away. The victim held onto the money and both the suspect and victim fell to the ground during the struggle. Givens was able to gain possession of the cash and fled. The victim, good samaratins and an off duty trooper chased and captured Givens. At this point Givens was detained until troopers arrived. The money was returned to the victim. The victim was not injured.

Brandon A. Givens, 30 of Seaford, was transported to Troop 3 where he was formally charged with Robbery 1st Degree. He was arraigned before Justice of the Peace Court 7 and committed the James T. Vaugh Correctional Center in default of a $25,000.00 secured bond. (Mug shot attached)
