Staff Writer Delaware State Police, Police & Fire, RSS

Delaware State Police are investigating an armed carjacking that occurred in New Castle on Saturday afternoon.

On September 30, 2023, at approximately 4:36 p.m., troopers responded to a storage lot at 152 South Dupont Boulevard in New Castle for a carjacking. When troopers arrived, they discovered that a 28-year-old victim had entered the parking lot driving a Chevrolet Impala. The victim’s intention was to drop off a 59-year-old victim who was about to switch into a truck to make deliveries. However, before the switch could take place, an unidentified black male approached them. The suspect demanded money while displaying a firearm. The victims, both from New Castle, ran. The suspect fired several shots at the victims as they ran away. The suspect subsequently stole two bags of clothing from the 59-year-old victim’s truck and fled in the Impala.

There were no reported injuries following the incident. The stolen vehicle was recovered in the New Castle area on October 1, 2023. Surveillance images and video are not available at this time.
