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.
