Incident/Complaint#:  50-17-16 and 50-17-61

Date/Time:  Sunday, January 1st, 2017 at 3:13AM and 3:10PM

Location: 400 Block of Country Drive and 300 Block of Martin Street, Dover, DE

Officer Releasing Information:   M/Cpl. Mark Hoffman, Public Information Officer

Narrative:

Dover Police arrested two suspects and obtained warrants for a third after two armed robberies occurred within 12 hours on Sunday, January 1st.  The first incident occurred at 3:13AM when three victims were sitting on the exterior steps of an apartment building in the 400 Block of Country Drive in Country Village Apartments.  Four black male suspects approached the group, one with a handgun, and stole money from two victims and an ID belonging to another.  One victim was struck by a suspect’s hand and another struck with the handgun one of the suspects was carrying.  None of the victims were seriously injured.

At 3:10PM, officers responded to the 300 Block of Martin Street for another armed robbery.  In this incident, three suspects robbed two victims with a revolver, taking a book bag, cellphone, and wallet from one victim and headphones and a pocket knife from the other.  The suspects fled in a red SUV with “2000” written on the driver’s side window.

Patrol units later located this vehicle in the area of the Dover Mall and attempted to stop the vehicle near Cedar Chase Apartments where the vehicle struck a light pole and a fence.  The driver and front seat passenger both fled on foot.  The front passenger, Alexis Williams, was taken into custody after a short foot chase, while the driver, Rahiem Jackson, was able to elude arrest at the time.  Officers located the stolen headphones from the Martin Street robbery on the floorboard in the backseat of the red SUV.  Detectives were able to link Jackson and Williams to the Martin Street robbery through further investigation.

While on scene at Cedar Chase apartments, Antoine McDonald arrived inquiring about his sister, Alexis Williams.  McDonald stated that “someone called him” but refused to tell police who made the call.  Officers learned that McDonald was the owner of the red SUV and were able to determine that he was a suspect in the Country Village Apartments robbery from 12 hours earlier.

As a result of the investigation, McDonald and Williams were both arrested and Jackson is currently wanted by the Dover Police Department.

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to contact the Dover Police Department at (302)736-7130. Callers may remain anonymous.
