Two teens were arrested after police say they conspired to attack and rob a woman in Felton.

According to the Delaware State Police Department, the incident occurred shortly after 12 a.m., Sunday when troopers were called to Willow Grove Road in Felton in reference to an assault complaint.

Troopers arrived and met with a 22-year-old female victim who said the incident occurred when she went to a home she used to live at in the 200 block of Turtle Dove Lane in Felton to retrieve some of her belongings.

When the victim arrived, she made contact with two of her ex-roommates, 18-year-old Ashley N. Calloway and 17-year-old Sierra Yeakel, at which time police say Calloway stole her phone and handed it over to Yeakel.

Callaway then proceeded to strike the victim several times in the face, according to police. The victim was able to leave the residence; however, she was not able to contact 911 immediately due to not having a cell phone. The victim sustained minor injuries and declined medical treatment.

Calloway and Yeakel were apprehended without incident.

Calloway was charged with Robbery Second Degree, Conspiracy Second Degree (Felony), Assault Third Degree and Malicious Interference Emergency Communications. She was arraigned and released on her own recognizance.

Yeakel was charged with Robbery Second Degree and Conspiracy Second Degree (Felony). She was arraigned and released on her own recognizance.
