GEORGETOWN, Del.- Delaware State Police are looking for three suspects wanted for ambushing and robbing a driver on Warrington Road just west of Georgetown on Sunday afternoon.

Troopers said the incident occurred at approximately 4:45 p.m. as the 34-year-old man was driving westbound on Warrington Road and came to a stop at the intersection with Asbury Road. Police said that at that point, two vehicles blocked him in so he could not pull away and three men jumped out of one of vehicles. Troopers said one of the men was armed with a handgun and stood at the front of the car pointing the gun at him while the other two opened the driver’s side and passenger’s side doors. Police said that once the doors were open, the two demanded his money and began punching him in the face before grabbing his wallet from his pants. 

The suspects then jumped back into their vehicle, which was described as a red Ford Bronco, and drove northbound on Ashbury Road with the second vehicle, which was described as a black Chevrolet Silverado, following right behind. Police said the victim was slightly injured in the incident, but did not require immediate medical attention and was able to call 9-1-1.

Troopers said the three suspects were only described as white males with one of them being armed with an unknown type handgun. 

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Detective K. Archer at (302) 752-3791.  Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, via the internet at www.delaware.crimestoppersweb.com, or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword "DSP."
