Man Charged With TD Bank Robbery in Wilmington

WILMINGON, Del. (AP)- Police say a man who robbed an elderly woman in Wilmington is also responsible for a bank robbery in the city.

Police say 29-year-old Qwai Tilgham has been charged with both crimes. Police say that on Sept. 3 Tilgham robbed an 82-year-old woman exiting Taffy's Food Market. They say that on Monday he robbed the TD bank in the 300 block of Delaware Avenue.

Police say Monday's robbery happened around 8 a.m. when Tilgham entered the bank and displayed a note demanding cash. He then fled.

Police say that as Tilgham was awaiting arraignment for the first robbery a detective noticed similarities between him and the bank robbery suspect. Tilgham later acknowledged committing both robberies.

He does not appear to have a listed telephone number.
