GEORGETOWN, Del. - Two men have been arrested, after they apparently stole items from a man whom they assaulted.

Georgetown Police say on Friday, around 11:00 AM, they responded to the 500 building of Dunbarton, for reports of a fight in progress. An investigation showed that a 35-year-old male had been assaulted and robbed earlier in the day, and when they arrived he was fighting with the two people that had robbed him.

Police say earlier in the day, 24-year-old Frank Wilkerson, of Millsboro, and 32-year-old Christopher Roth, of Georgetown, took the victim's wallet, cell phone, and a gold ring, after assaulting him.

A witness reportedly told Police that they had seen Wilkerson and Roth go into Chardon Jewelers on the circle. Police say they went to the store, and found the victim's ring, along with a slip signed by Roth, stating that the item was not stolen.

Wilkerson and Roth were both taken into custody, and charged with robbery, conspiracy, assault, and theft by false pretense. The are both being held at Sussex Correctional Institute on $34,000 bond, with a future court date.
