Two Sussex County men are in jail and facing multiple charges after an assault and robbery at the Dunbarton Oaks apartment complex in Georgetown on June 20.

Police responded to the 500 building in the apartment complex around 11 a.m. for a report of a fight in progress, according to Georgetown Police Department spokesman Lt. Lawrence Grose.

Police determined that a 35-year-old man was assault and robbed earlier in the morning. Police said the victim was apparently fighting with the two men who robbed him.

The suspects were identified as 24-year-old Frank J. Wilkerson, of Millsboro, and 32-year-old Christopher L. Roth, of Georgetown. Grose said Wilkerson and Roth allegedly assaulted the 35-year-old man and took his wallet, cell phone and a gold ring.

A witness reported that Wilkerson and Roth were seen near a jewelry store on The Circle, where police later located the victim’s ring and a form singed by Roth stating the ring was not stolen.

Wilkerson and Roth are both charged with robbery, conspiracy, assault and theft by false pretense. They were committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution in lieu of a $34,000 cash bond each.
