The Dover Police Department is investigating a robbery that occurred Saturday night following a road rage incident. The investigation began when Dover Police Department was called for the report of a Robbery that had occurred at Wawa. Officers responded and contacted the victims who advised that they were driving eastbound on Forrest Avenue when they pulled in to a parking lot. The victims were approached by a male with a bat who believed he was cut off by the victim. The male then shattered the passenger side window the vehicle, causing the passenger to sustain minor injuries. Two female suspects then approached the vehicle and ordered the driver out of the car and demanded he turn over money. The victim did not initially comply, however he was forced to go to the ATM at Wawa and withdraw an undisclosed amount of money, ultimately turning it over to one of the female suspects. The suspects then fled in a black Ford F-150 that was located in the Wawa parking lot. (See photos below)
