Traffic Flagger Robbed in Del.

Posted:
WOODSIDE, Del.- Delaware State Police are looking for two suspects wanted for robbing a road flagger near Polytech High School in Woodside.
 
The incident reportedly occurred shortly after 10 a.m. Monday in the area of Walnut Shade Road as a 21-year-old man was working as a flagger during road work. Authorities said that is when the flagger was approached by two unknown male suspects who required an escort to go through the construction zone. 
 
Troopers said that as the victim was walking in front of the suspects, they began to assault him and knocked him to the ground.  The suspects then took an undisclosed amount of cash from the victim and fled eastbound on Walnut Shade Road and then south on Millchop Lane. The victim was not injured in the incident, according to police.
 
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.
  •
