HARTLY, Del.- Delaware State Police have arrested three suspects accused of robbing a man in the parking lot of a Hartly convenience store.
Police said the incident occurred shortly after 8 p.m. Wednesday, as a 25-year-old male victim pulled into the Royal Farms on Halltown Road to fuel his car. Troopers said that after the victim obtained money from an ATM outside the store, he began walking through the parking lot to the entrance to pay for some gas. Police said that the victim was soon approached by a tall, thin male suspect, later identified as 19-year-old Bradford J. Husfelt, of Dover, who grabbed $200 from his hand and ran to the opposite side of the store. 

Police said the victim then noticed a white station wagon exiting the parking lot in a reckless manner and ran back to his own car where he proceeded to follow the fleeing vehicle onto Halltown Road (SR8) toward Dover. 

Authorities said the victim then called the Kent County Emergency Operations Center (9-1-1) and gave the vehicle information to the dispatchers, who broadcast a general bulletin out across the radio. 

Police said thatt at one point as the car was traveling eastbound into Dover, a male in the passenger's seat pointed a black handgun out of the window at the victim and his 25-year-old female passenger.
Officers from Dover Police Department, who were also notified of the incident, were able to conduct a traffic stop on the suspect vehicle as it entered into the city limits and took Husfelt (front seat passenger), 20-year-old Clayton L. Adam (rear passenger), of Dover, and 17-year-old Daniel C. Legg (driver), of Hartly, into custody without incident. A search of the vehicle revealed the $200 in cash and a 9mm pistol, police said.
The three suspects were then transported back to DSP Troop 3 where they were all charged with first-degree robbery, possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, two counts of aggravated menacing, second-degree conspiracy and theft under $1,500.  Husfelt and Adam were ordered held in default of $14,500 secured bond and Legg was released to a parent on $14,500 unsecured bond.
None of the victims were injured in this incident, police said.
