Posted: Updated:

MILFORD, Del. - Police are looking for information, after a suspect reportedly held a knife to a teenager's throat in a Milford gas station parking lot.

Milford Police say on Tuesday, around 9:15 AM a 53-year-old and a 17-year-old were in the parking lot of the Sunoco Gas Station on Milford-Harrington Highway, when they were approached by an unknown while male. According to the report, the suspect pulled out a knife, grabbed the 17-year-old and held the knife to their throat while demanding cash from the 53-year-old.

Police describe the suspect as a while male, between 6' and 6' 2" tall, with a thick build, weighting between 200 and 225 points, last seen wearing dark colored clothing.
