REHOBOTH BEACH, Del.- Rehoboth Beach Police are working to identify two suspects responsible for robbing a Rehoboth Beach woman and throwing her from their moving car Saturday night. 
 
It happened just after 10:30 p.m. in the area of State Road and Hickman Street.

When police arrived,  officers learned that a 26-year-old woman was approached by a man while walking South on State Road.  Police say the man grabbed the victim’s purse and after a brief struggle was able to take it away from her. Police say he ran to a silver Toyota Camary, driven by a woman.

Police say the victim tried to stop the suspects and reached into the car in an effort to turn it off and take the keys.  The driver drove off,  causing the victim to be thrown into the roadway. As a result, police say the victim sustained multiple cuts to her shoulder blades, elbow, ankle, and hand. 
 
Police say the first suspect is described as a black man with an average build, short hair,  in his mid 30’s to early 40’s, and 5'11" to 6'1" . He was reportedly wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt with a pocket on the front and pants at the time of the robbery.
 
The second suspect, who was driving the car, is described as a white woman having an average build, long brown hair, in her mid 20’s to early 30’s.  
 
The female suspect was reportedly operating a silver Toyota Camary with a white paper temporary registration from an unknown state.  The vehicle was last seen by witnesses northbound on State Route 1 in Rehoboth Beach in the area of the Kmart. 
 
Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to please contact Detective Tyler Whitman at (302) 524-1391 or message the Rehoboth Beach Police Department via our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/rehobothbeachpolice.
