Two Dover Teens Arrested on Robbery Charges


Two teen boys from Dover have been arrested on robbery charges after an incident Sunday just after 6pm. Dover Police were called for a robbery on a walking path off Mifflin Road.

  • Robbery First Degree
  • Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony
  • Possession of a Firearm/Ammo by a Person Prohibited (2x)
  • Conspiracy Second Degree
  • Resisting Arrest

Both suspects were committed to Stevenson House Detention Facility on $56,000 cash bail.
