GEORGETOWN, Del. -  Police have arrested two suspects for an armed robbery and assault that happened early Tuesday morning in Georgetown.

According to Georgetown Police, shortly before 1 a.m., the victim was walking along Albury Avenue when two suspects approached, displayed a black handgun and demanded cash.

Police say after taking the victim's wallet, one suspect hit the victim in the head with the handgun. The suspects then reportedly ordered the victim to lay face down on the ground in a nearby yard.
