Hitch Hiking Problems Continue In Delaware

Posted: Updated:

KENT CO, Del. - For the second time, in less than 2 months, some trusting Delaware drivers find themselves in a dangerous situation.

It was at the intersection of Milford-Harrington Highway and Sandbox Road where police say the 45-year-old man stopped to give two men a ride to Harrington, thinking one was a friend of his.  When he pulled over, it was apparently, too late.  The suspects reportedly got into the car and told the man to drive.

According police, once they got to Bloomfield Drive, the suspect in the backseat pulled out what the man thought was a gun.  They demanded cash and the two suspects fled.

Back in March, a similar situation for 89-year-old Margaret Smith, when she gave 2 teenage girls a ride in Milford.

They and 3 other teens reportedly locked her in the trunk of her own car and drove around for about 48 hours before dumping her in a cemetery.

The teens were later arrested and face a number of charges.  

In this most recent case, the two men are still at large.

The two suspects are described as white males between 5' 7" and 6 feet tall, and one is said to have long blonde hair.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Delaware State Police at 1-800-TIP-33-33
