Delaware State Police troopers are investigating a robbery of a 51-year-old woman that occurred at her residence in the 500 block of Wilson Road Tuesday evening.
The incident occurred at 10:14 p.m. Tuesday when the victim entered her vehicle, which was parked in the garage of her residence, State Police Cpl. John Day said. As she prepared to drive out of the garage, a black male suspect, armed with a handgun, appeared at her vehicle's window.
