Teens accosted in New Castle

A couple of New Castle County teens crash their car in an effort to escape muggers Monday night.

Two unknown men approached a parked car in Garfield Park around 7:30 p.m., demanding the 16- and 18-year olds inside fork over their possessions.

One of the suspects was carrying a handgun.

The driver managed to place the car in reverse after being assaulted by the men.

The car drove over a median and ran into a light pole and parked car.

The two suspects fled on foot empty-handed.

Police used canines and canvassed the surrounding neighborhood but turned up nothing.

One of the teens sustained a minor injury from the incident.
