State Police Investigating Armed Robbery

Staff Writer Police & Fire, RSS

The Delaware State Police are investigating an armed robbery that occurred yesterday afternoon in Georgetown.

On June 3, 2023, at approximately 5:05 p.m., troopers responded to a residence on the 26000 block of Governor Stockley Road regarding a robbery that had just occurred. Troopers learned that the 62-year-old victim had just arrived home and was sitting in her parked car in the driveway. She was unexpectedly approached by two unknown black males, both armed with handguns. One of the men sat in the passenger seat, and the other opened her door and demanded her phone and bank cards. He then pulled the victim out of her car, got inside, and tried to drive away. However, both suspects abandoned the car shortly afterwards, ran to their own vehicle parked on an adjacent dirt driveway, and fled the scene. The victim was not injured.

Both suspects were described as black males wearing dark clothing. There is no vehicle description available, and surveillance video and images have not been acquired.

The Troop 4 Criminal Investigations Unit is still investigating this incident. Detectives are asking for anyone with information regarding this case to contact Detective J. Hill by calling 302-752-3792. Information may also be provided by sending a Private Facebook Message to the Delaware State Police or contacting Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-847-3333.
