Troopers Arrest Two Juveniles for Attempted Robbery

Staff Writer Police & Fire, RSS

Delaware State Police have arrested two 14-year-old juvenile males for attempted robbery and related charges following an incident that occurred during the end of August.

On August 25, 2022, at approximately 7:44 p.m., troopers responded to the Capriottis sandwich shop, located at 120 Lantana Drive, Hockessin, DE regarding an attempted knife-point robbery. A 66-year-old female victim and a 38-year-old female victim were sitting outside of the sandwich shop when they were approached by two suspects. One of the suspects displayed a kitchen knife towards the victims and demanded both their car keys. The victims did not comply so the suspect then demanded their purses. The victims again did not comply, so the suspects fled the scene on foot.

Through investigative means troopers identified the two suspects and obtained warrants for their arrest. On August 30, 2022, the 14-year-old juvenile male of New Castle turned himself in at Troop 6. He was charged with Attempted Robbery First Degree (Felony) – 2 counts, Possession of a Deadly Weapon During the Commission of a Felony (Felony), and Conspiracy 2nd Degree (Felony). The juvenile was arraigned in the Justice of the Peace Court #11 and committed to the New Castle County Detention Center on $61,000 secured bond.

On September 1, 2022, the other 14-year-old juvenile male of Hockessin turned himself in at New Castle County PD. He was charged with Attempted Robbery First Degree (Felony) – 2 counts, and Conspiracy 2nd Degree (Felony). The juvenile was arraigned in the New Castle County Family Court and released on $6,000 unsecured bond.
