Incident #: 50-13-33765     Date/Time: Monday, December 9, 2013  2:38PM

Location:  McDonald’s Parking Lot (879 North Dupont Highway)

Narrative:
On Monday, December 9, 2013, at 2:38pm,  the Dover Police Department received a 911 call stating that a 58 year old male victim was the victim of a robbery that occurred in the parking lot of McDonald’s  located at 879 North Dupont Highway.  The victim, an employee of the business, was walking out to his vehicle when approached by Ramon Ruffin (DOB: 5-29-1967).  Ruffin pointed a handgun at the victim and demanded his wallet.  The victim was struck in the head with the handgun by Ruffin and a struggle ensued.  The victim was struck in the head and face area numerous times with the handgun during the struggle.  As the robbery was occurring, a 57 year old male victim was entering the parking lot and witnessed the altercation between Ruffin and the original victim.  Ruffin then pointed the handgun at the second victim as the offender was entering a white mini van.  The second victim was able to obtain the license plate information of Ruffin’s vehicle and immediately notified Dover Police.  A short time later, Dover Police Patrol officers observed the vehicle in the area of North Dupont Highway and Scarborough Road.  Once officers attempted to stop the vehicle, Ruffin fled, leading police on a vehicle chase in which the suspect struck two other vehicles.  The chase ended when Ruffin struck a pole in the parking lot of Delaware Technical and Community College.  After the collision at the school, Ruffin fled on foot but was apprehended by Dover officers.  A search of the vehicle by detectives produced a loaded .45 caliber handgun.  The hand gun was discovered to be stolen from Richmond, Virginia.  The Delaware Technical and Community College was on lock-down status for approximately 15 minutes, when the all-clear was given.  The robbery victim suffered numerous broken bones and lacerations to the head and face area as a result of being struck several times with the handgun by Ruffin, but is expected to recover from his injuries with further treatment.
