Delaware Police Arrest Georgetown Man for Attempting to Carjack Twice

Posted: Updated:

LEWES, De. - Delaware State Police have arrested a Georgetown man for attempting to carjack twice late yesterday afternoon. Police say 24 year-old Dionte Stanley, who was shirtless at the time of the incidents, flagged down a 49 year-old Milton man and a 68 year-old Harbeson man. In each incident, police say both victims thought Stanley was flagging them down due to some type of distress or need of help. But once stopped, police say Stanley would approach and begin making irrational statements while attempting to get inside the car.

Delaware State Police say both men called 911 and neither were injured from the incidents.

When troopers arrived, police say Stanley was arrested without incident. Stanley is now facing charges of 1st and 2nd degree carjacking among others. Stanley was arraigned and then committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on a $68,000 cash-only bond.
