Suspect Sought in Milford Attempted Armed Robbery

Posted:

MILFORD, Del.- A man wielding a knife and a baseball bat allegedly tried to rob a Milford store and now police are asking the public's help in identifying him. 

Police said the incident occurred at around 3 p.m. Feb. 9, at the 84 Lumber store. According to investigators, the armed suspect entered the store and demanded money from the store employee. The employee told the suspect the register could not be opened without a purchase. Police said the suspect then took store merchandise and provided his own money to the  employee to purchase the items.

Investigators said that after an argument over the purchase, a brief struggle ensued between the employee and the suspect. The employee was able to take the baseball bat from the suspect but suffered a minor injury to the hand as a result. The suspect then ran out of the store.

The store employee refused medical treatment, police said. The suspect was described by investigators as black, in his late teens to early 20s, between 5-foot-7 and 5-foot-9, and 150-170 pounds.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Detective Dwight Young or Detective John Horsman at (302) 422-8081 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.
