Police search for robbery suspects

Date: February 6, 2013

   At about 8 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 1, Middletown Police responded to the Villagebrook Mobile Home Park in reference to a robbery that had just occurred. Upon arrival, officers learned that the victim, who was walking in the neighborhood, was approached from behind and pushed to the ground.  He was surrounded by a group of five to six male subjects, one of whom was wearing a dark colored puffy jacket. This suspect displayed what the victim believed to be a handgun.  The victim was held at gunpoint, while a second subject went through his pockets, removing property.

   The suspects fled with an undisclosed amount of cash, a Kyocera cell phone, and the victim’s Nike sneakers.

   Responding officers checked the vicinity and MPD K-9 Nitro conducted a track, which led to the area of Duke Field, but did not result in the location of the suspects.

   Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact Middletown Police at 302.376.9950 or via email at Patrick.mullin@cj.state.de.us
