DOVER, Del. - A man accused of robbing a pedicab driver at gunpoint during the Firefly Music Festival turned himself in to Dover police Wednesday after learning there was a warrant out for his arrest.

Antonio Stevens, 22, is charged with first-degree robbery, possession of firearm by person prohibited, possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, and offensive touching. He is currently being held at James T. Vaughn Correctional Center without bail.

According to police, at around 2:45 a.m. June 21, Stevens asked a 29-year-old male pedicab driver to take him from the area of the festival to the intersection of Lakeview and Sunset Drive. Investigators said that upon arrival, Stevens placed a gun to the back of the driver and demanded money and personal belongings, before fleeing with an undisclosed amount of cash and the victim's cellphone.

Dover police officers, with the assistance of a Delaware State Police K-9 unit, were able to track Stevens' path towards the Dover Inn, where the officers found the victim's cellphone on the roof of the hotel. Detectives obtained security footage from the hotel staff and were able to identify Stevens and issue a warrant for his arrest, according to authorities.
