WEST REHOBOTH, Del. - Delaware State Police are investigating an attempted robbery of a bicyclist that occurred over night near West Rehoboth.

The incident happened sometime around 12:45 a.m. Thursday when a 21-year-old woman was riding her bicycle southbound on the service road adjacent to Coastal Highway near the Secured Self Storage. 

Police say a man approached her from the right side and pushed her of her bike causing her to fall into some grass.  Once down, the suspect attempted to remove her backpack, but police say the woman resisted and the suspect was possibly scared off by a passing car. The suspect was unsuccessful in obtaining any of the victim's belongings and was seen getting into a car that may have fled southbound into Rehoboth.  The victim was not reported to be injured in this incident.

If anyone has information regarding this incident, they are asked to contact Troop 4 Major Crimes Unit at 302-856-5850. 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.”
