18-year-old reportedly robbed in Dover apartment complex parking lot

DOVER, Del. – Dover Police are working to investigate a reported robbery that happened in an apartment complex parking lot Thursday evening.

Police say incident happened between 5:36 PM and 5:46 PM. An 18-year-old male victim was waiting in the parking lot of the Country Village Apartment complex waiting to meet an alleged seller from the “LetGo” mobile app to purchase a cell phone when he was reportedly approached by four male suspects, two of which were armed with knives.
