DOVER, Del.– Dover police are searching for two suspects wanted in connection with an attempted armed robbery that occurred last weekend outside the Wawa convenience store on the corner of South DuPont Highway and Court Street.
According to police, on Saturday, April 14, Shakir Swain and Troy Ingram tried to steal $600 worth of stereo equipment from the victim in front of the Wawa.
