NEWARK, DE – Newark Police are currently investigating two attempted robberies, and possibly a third, that have occurred since 1900 hours today, October 17, 2020.

In the first incident, which occurred in the 200 block of East Delaware Avenue, two females were seated in a vehicle in a parking lot.  Two young black males approached the vehicle and demanded their personal property.  No property was turned over and the suspects fled to a dark colored pick-up truck.

Shortly thereafter, a male was confronted while walking on East Delaware Avenue near Haines Street.  The two suspects, described as young black males, ordered the victim to turn over personal property while implying they were armed with a weapon.  No weapon was observed.  The victim refused to turn over his property and the suspects fled to a dark colored pick-up truck.

A third victim reported that she was chased on foot by a young black male suspect who had been driving a dark colored pick-up truck in the area of South Chapel Street and Lovett Avenue.  There was no attempt to take her property.  The pick-up truck fled the area.

These incidents are all currently under investigation by Newark Police.
