The Altar

Today's Wilmington News Journal "descriptions" of two robberies.'s stories on same from their main page (partially copied since their main page changes often). As usual, pick out the details the WNJ omitted:

Story one:

State Police are investigating the second robbery in about a week at the Wilmington Trust branch in the Community Plaza Shopping Center.
Police say a man entered the bank around 10 Saturday morning and handed a teller a holdup note saying he had a gun. The suspect got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The suspect is described as black, between 30 to 40 years old, five four to five six with an average build, and was wearing a black jacket, dark jeans, and a black knit hat.

Story two:

Newark police hope you can help them find a pair of masked robbery suspects. Police say the suspects approached the victim as he walked along Madison Drive around 7:20 PM Friday, and one suspect held an object against the victim's back and demanded he turn over his belongings. The victim gave the suspects his stuff, and they took off.

Police describe the suspects as black, weaing blue coats, dark masks and wool hats, and are asking anyone with information to call Newark detectives or Crimestoppers.

In addition, has a report on a Middletown gas station that was robbed yesterday:

Police in Middletown are asking for your help in finding the suspect in a gas station holdup. Police say a man demanded and got cash at knifepoint from the clerk at the Shore Stop Valero station on Broad Street around 10 Saturday morning. A search of the area using a police dog turned up nothing.

The suspect is described as white, between 20 to 30 years old, six feet tall, with a medium build, wearing blue jeans, a blue jacket, a white mask, and gloves.

Here's the WNJ report on same:
