UPDATE: Three arrested, suspect at large after reported Dover robberies

DOVER, Del. - Police say that three men were arrested for committing robberies on Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning, in Dover.

In the first incident, a 53-year-old man was robbed at 10:45 PM on Tuesday night. The male victim was reportedly walking in the 600 block of Ridgely Street, toward Forrest Avenue, when a light colored vehicle arrived and two suspects came out.

Police say that the suspects displayed handguns and demanded money from the victim. The victim dropped his cell phone, which the suspects reportedly picked up, and the suspects fled west on Forrest Avenue. 

In the second incident, officers responded to the area of South Bradford Street and Loockerman Street at 1:32 AM, for a report of an armed robbery.

Officers contacted a 26-year-old woman who said that she was approached by two black male suspects, one reportedly displayed a handgun, while the second suspect allegedly demanded money. The victim reportedly refused to comply and the suspects fled in a silver Dodge Charger with a black license plate.

Patrol officers that were checking the area found a vehicle matching that description and tried to make contact with the visitors at the Dover Inn on North DuPont Highway.

Eight-teen-year-old Kaliph Miller and an unknown suspect allegedly ran away from the vehicle. Miller was arrested a short time later; however, the other unidentified suspect is still at large.

Two more suspects, 18-year-old Samuel Horton and 20-year-old Douglas Moon, reportedly remained with the vehicle and were taken into custody without incident. Officers say that they then found a .22 caliber handgun and nine millimeter handgun (both loaded) inside the suspect's vehicle, in plain view.

Officers also reportedly found a loaded .40 caliber handgun along the path that Miller took when he first fled from officers. Horton has been charged with first degree robbery, attempted first degree robbery, two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and second degree conspiracy.

Moon was charged with first degree robbery, attempted first degree robbery, two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and second degree conspiracy. He was released on $80,500 unsecured bond. 

Miller was charged with resisting arrest, two counts of possession of a firearm by a person prohibited, second degree conspiracy, first degree attempted robbery, first degree robbery and two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. His bond is pending.
