NEWARK, DELAWARE (3/2/2015) Newark police have arrested three suspects from Pike Creek in a strong-arm robbery last month at the Radio Shack store in the College Square shopping center.

The robbery happened about 8:25 p.m. on Feb. 16.

Two black males asked to see an iPad Air 2 tablet computer, and as a clerk was showing them a device one of the males ripped it out of the clerk’s hands and the pair ran out of the store. They jumped into a silver Honda minivan, where a driver was waiting for them.

Police identified three suspects and a search of their residence in Carnaby Hall at the Engilish Village apartments on Friday turned up multiple items linking them to the crime, Cpl. James Spadola said.

  • Shamayah Thomas, 20,  was committed to Young Correctional Institution in Wilmington in lieu of $18,000 cash bail.
  • Vaquan Williams, 24, was committed to Young in lieu of $13,000 cash bail.
  • A 16-year-old boy was committed to the New Castle County Detention Center in lieu of $15,500 secured bail.
