The Dover Police Department is investigating an armed robbery that occurred in a parking lot of Lake Club Apartments early Saturday morning. The victim contacted Dover Police and advised he arrived at the apartment complex in his vehicle and was supposed to be meeting someone. He advised that shortly after arriving at the complex he was approached by two black males. The first suspect was armed with a handgun and wearing a mask. The second suspect did not have a mask on and was wearing a hooded sweatshirt. The victim was ordered out of his vehicle by the suspects and he complied. The suspects entered the victims vehicle and attempted to leave, however they could not operate the manual transmission, so they ordered the victim to drive them around. The suspects obtained an undisclosed amount of money from the victim and were dropped off at a local hotel. The location of this hotel is being withheld at this time to preserve the integrity of this investigation.
The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to contact the Dover Police Department at (302)736-7111. Callers may remain anonymous. Tips may also be submitted to law enforcement through Delaware Crime Stoppers at 800-TIP-3333 or online at delaware.crimestoppersweb.com; a cash reward is possible for information leading to an arrest.
