MILLSBORO, Del.– Police are searching for a man wanted for knocking over an elderly man and attempting to rob him in the parking lot of a Millsboro convenience store.

According to Millsboro police, officers responded to the Millsboro Bodie’s just before 3 p.m. Thursday for a report of an attempted strong armed robbery.

An elderly male victim told police he had been leaving the store when an unknown male suspect grabbed him from behind, causing him to fall to the ground. The victim said he fended off the suspect before the suspect could grab his wallet. The suspect then took off on a bike, according to the victim.

Investigators said the suspect, who is described as a black male in his early to mid-20s, was last seen wearing gray sweatpants and a white T-shirt. Anyone with information about this incident should contact Detective Robert Legates of the Millsboro Police Department at (302)_ 934-8174.
