Three Sought in Felton Convenience Store Robbery

Posted: Updated:

FELTON, Del.- Delaware State Police are looking for three suspects wanted for holding up an Uncle Wllies convenience store in Felton early Tuesday morning. 

Police said the incident happened shortly after midnight as two male suspects entered the business, located at 12984 South DuPont Highway. Troopers said the suspects, one of whom was armed with an unknown make and model handgun, confronted two employees. The employees then ran to the back of the store and hid in a room, authorities said. Police said both suspects gained entry into the room and knocked an employee to the ground and kicked him several times. The suspects then fled from the back room before taking money from a cash register and an employee’s cellphone, investigators said. A third suspect was reportedly seen standing outside the front door but did not enter the store. The suspects fled in a dark colored vehicle. The employees were not injured, police said. 

The first suspect was described as a black male, between 25 and 30 years of age, approximately 5-foot-7 to 5-foot-8, slim build, wearing a dark hooded jacket and dark pants with his face covered armed with an unknown handgun.

The second suspect was also described as a black male, between 25 and 30 years of age, between 6-foot and 6-foot-1, slim build wearing a light colored hooded jacket with dark pants with his face covered.

The third suspect was only described as a subject wearing dark clothing.

This incident remains under investigation. No video surveillance photos are available to be released at this time.
