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.

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.
