  • The Delaware State Police is seeking a suspect in a Nov. 25 Milton robbery that sent one man to a local hospital.
    Police said the incident occurred around 10 p.m. as a 26-year-old man returned to his home in the 19000 block of E. Meadowview Drive in the Cool Springs area. Police said as the man stepped out of his friend’s vehicle and onto his front porch, a man armed with a handgun approached the victim and demanded money. Police said after receiving an undisclosed amount of cash, the suspect struck the victim in the head with the gun. Police said the handgun discharged a round into the unoccupied residence, but did not strike the victim. Police said the suspect then turned to the vehicle, occupied by two men ages 22 and 19, and fired three rounds, striking the vehicle before the victims sped off to safety. Police said the suspect then fled the scene in an unknown direction. Police said the 26-year-old victim then called his two friends, who returned to the residence and transported him to Beebe Healthcare where he was treated and released with minor contusions to his head. The other two victims were not injured.
