Woman Robbed While Walking Dog in Magnolia Neighborhood

Posted: Updated:

MAGNOLIA, Del. - Police are investigating the robbery of a woman who was walking her dog at the time of the incident.

Delaware State Police say the 57-year-old victim was in Magnolia's Paris Villa development, in the area of Plum Drive and Apple Run around 8:40 p.m. on Thursday.
