WOODSIDE, Del.- Delaware State Police are looking for two suspects wanted for robbing a road flagger near Polytech High School in Woodside.

The suspects were described as follows:
 
  • Black male, 18-23 years of age, approximately 6-foot-tall, thin build, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and facial hair.
  • Black male, 18-23 years of age, approximately 5-foot-8, thin build, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and facial hair.
