4 Charged In Rehoboth Convenience Store Assault

4665

Two employees of Royal Farms on Coastal Highway in Rehoboth Beach are assaulted, and four suspects – including an ex-boyfriend of one of the victims – are facing charges.

Delaware State Police say that suspect started to assault the 19-year-old woman in the store late Tuesday night. The other employee, a 22-year-old man, tried to intervene but one of the other suspects turned on him.

Then, the male suspect ran to a parked vehicle and retrieved a handgun and came back into the store. The group left, apparently as they heard the sirens of arriving police vehicles.

The female victim required hospital treatment for her injuries. The male employee did not need medical attention.

State Police say the suspects turned themselves in at Troop Seven.
