The Delaware State Police are investigating an attempted robbery that took place earlier this morning at the Valero Shore Stop in Felton.
On August 29, 2023, at approximately 8:50 a.m., an unknown white male suspect walked into the Shore Stop located at 8953 S. Dupont Highway with a shirt wrapped around his head. The suspect approached the store clerk from behind the counter, pointed a knife at her, and told her to open the cash register. When the clerk did not comply, the suspect tried to take the entire register but was unable to do so. The suspect then fled from the store and was last seen running southbound away from the business.
