MILFORD, Del.- Police have arrested two teenagers accused of threatening to kill a man during an attempted armed robbery that allegedly occurred over the weekend in Milford.

The incident reportedly happened at around 11 p.m. Saturday. Milford police said 18-year-old Tyrell Williams of Bridgeville, a 16-year-old boy and three other male juveniles (ages 13, 14 and 15) were walking in the area of SE 2nd Street when they observed the 26-year-old victim walking as well.

According to police, Williams and the 16-year-old approached the victim and asked for money. Investigators said that when the victim refused to give them his money, the two suspects pulled out CO2 pistols, which the victim believed to be real handguns. The two then demanded money from the victim again and threatened to kill him if he did not comply, according to police. However, police said the pair was again unsuccessful. 

Police received a report of the robbery attempt minutes later and made contact Williams, the 16-year-old and the three other juveniles on foot on a nearby street. Officers said the group refused to stop and comply with the officers' orders but were eventually subdued and taken into custody.

Williams and the 16-year-old were charged with attempted armed robbery, possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, second-degree conspiracy, terroristic threatening and resisting arrest. Williams was ordered held in the Sussex Correctional Institution in default of $12,250 secured bond. The 16-year-old was released to the custody of his parents in addition to $12,250 unsecured bond.

While the three other teens were found not to be involved with the attempted robbery, they each were charged with one count of resisting arrest and later released to their parents/guardians.
