The Dover Police Department arrested four teenagers following a 2nd robbery of a pizza delivery person in just as many days.  At 11:30PM, a driver from Papa John’s Pizza (23-year-old male) attempted to deliver a food order to a home in the 800 Block of Townsend Blvd.  When the driver exited his vehicle, he was approached by four suspects who punched him in the head and face area, causing him to fall to the ground.  The suspects then took the food and an undisclosed amount of cash from the victim and fled the area.

A female suspect was identified as a result of a disorderly persons complaint at the Fairfield Inn on Jefferic Blvd. in Dover, when a report of four disorderly persons was called in to the Dover Police Department.  Utilizing that information, detectives were able to locate one of the suspects who was on GPS monitoring by Delaware Juvenile Probation.  Acting on information gained from the GPS system, officers responded to a home in the 500 Block of Buckson Drive.  Outside of the residence, officers observed  empty Papa John’s boxes and containers that matched the items ordered by the suspects.  Officers then located the four suspects inside the home and took them into custody without incident.  As a result of this incident, the following juveniles were charged with the following offenses for both robberies:
-Robbery 2nd Degree (2x)
-Conspiracy 2nd Degree (2x)
-Assault 3rd Degree (2x)

Alton Kinsey was charged in the second robbery of the Papa John’s employee and was charged with the following offenses:
