One injured during robbery at Wilmington ShopRite

A Wilmington supermarket is robbed Wednesday.

It happened at the ShopRite at 501 S. Market Street, where police say a man was taking items off the store shelves and placing them in his backpack.

When he tried to walk out the door, a security guard tried to stop him and the two scuffled, leaving the guard with a laceration to his face and an injured ankle.

The man fled on foot and is described as muscular, partially bald and with a full beard.

Anyone with information can call Wilmington police or Delaware CrimeStoppers.
