 Wilmington, Del. – Police arrested an Elsmere this morning after detectives linked him to two robberies.

The investigation began on December 8 when a man, later identified as Steven Cardwell, 28, robbed a 7-11 clerk at knifepoint. Police say Thursday evening Cardwell entered the Three Stars Pizza restaurant, 1700 Kirkwood Highway, with clothing covering his face. He displayed a knife and demanded money from the store owner, a 45-year-old male. Police say the man opened the cash register and Cardwell removed the money from the cash tray and fled.

Troop 2 robbery detectives who responded to the scene were able to link Cardwell to both robberies. Detectives and members of the Elsmere Police Department apprehended Cardwell this morning outside of his residence.

Officials say Cardwell was transported to Troop 2 where he was charged with two counts each of robbery first degree, possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, wearing a disguise during the commission of a felony, and possession of a deadly weapon by a person prohibited. He was committed to Howard R. Young Correctional Institute after failing to post $255,000 secured bail.
