DOVER, Del.- Dover police are asking the public's help in their investigation of robberies that occurred on two separate occasions at Court Street Liquors on South DuPont Highway.

The first robbery occurred shortly before 11 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 24, 2013, when two suspects wearing disguises and armed with handguns entered the store and demanded money and Newport cigarettes.  Police said the store employee complied, and the suspects fled with an undisclosed amount of cash and cigarettes.  The suspects were described as follows:

  • Suspect #1: Black male, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, black pants, black sneakers, red underwear, glove on right hand and a skeleton mask.
  • Suspect #2: Wearing a black jacket, black mask on face, black leather gloves, camo pants, black Adidas sneakers

Police said the second robbery of Court Street Liquors occurred shortly after 6 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 2, 2014, when a black male suspect wearing similar clothing and a disguise as the first suspect in the December holdup entered the store. Investigators said the suspect displayed a black handgun and demanded money and cigarettes from the employee.  The employee complied and the suspect fled the store with an undisclosed amount of money and merchandise.

That suspect was described as a black male, wearing black sneakers, black pants, a black hooded sweatshirt, black and white skull mask, and black gloves.

The employees were not injured during either robbery.
