Delaware State Police Police released images of a suspect they said appeared in the rear seat of the vehicle of a couple, both over the age of 70, as they returned home from a restaurant, then disappeared when the victims pulled up to a residence for assistance. 

Police said the man in the images popped up in the rear seat of a vehicle being driven by a 74-year-old woman along Red Tail Drive, also occupied by her 78-year-old husband, and began fighting with the male victim as the suspect attempted to grab the female victim's purse from the front seat. 

When both victims were able to exit the vehicle, they found the rear seat empty, the suspect already gone. 


Anyone with information regarding the identity of the suspect is urged to contact Delaware State Police at 302.697.4454 or Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1.800.TIP.3333.
