The Altar

Wilmington News Journal report about a guy who was robbed outside the Delaware Park casino:

The victim told police that he was waiting for a friend to finish in the casino when he was approached by two men with handguns, who demanded his wallet.

He complied, and the men both described as 20 to 25 years old, 6 feet tall, unshaven and with thin builds fled in a light-colored sedan.

WILM.com's report of the same incident:

The man says he was reading a newspaper waiting for a friend to come out of the casino this morning at about 2:00 a.m., when two male suspects approached. At least one of them had a handgun. The van's door was open at the time. They demanded, and received, the man's wallet and fled in a light-colored, four-door sedan. The suspects are described as between 20-and-25 years old, black, about six-feet tall with thin builds, and un-shaven.

Wilmington News Journal report of a priest getting robbed before church services:

The bandit ran out of the church with the donations for the poor, Barnes said. No one was injured.

The suspect is described as about 6 feet 3 inches tall and 185 pounds. He was dressed in black, with a red or orange design on the front of his T-shirt and a black baseball cap.

WILM.com's report of same:

The priest refused to give up his cellphone, saying he needed it for emergencies. The suspect, who fled the scene, is described as a black male, 6'2" to 6'3" tall, about 185 pounds. He wore a black baseball cap, and black clothing.

Hmm ... I wonder which media outlet is performing the better public service?
