NEWARK, Del.- Newark police say a Wilmington University graduate student has been robbed at gunpoint.
Investigators said the incident occurred at around 1:35 a.m. Tuesday on 100 East Delaware Ave. Police said the victim, a 24-year-old male, was walking eastbound on East Delaware Avenue when he was grabbed from behind by an unknown suspect.
