Delaware State Police are investigating a complaint from a man who said he was held up by two strangers.
The incident took place at 4 p.m. April 28 along the Milford-Harrington Highway, said police spokesman Master Cpl. Gary Fournier. The man, a 45-year-old Harrington resident, told officers he saw the two men walking along the highway and, thinking one was a friend, offered a ride. The men ordered him to drive along several back roads before one of them placed what appeared to be a gun against the back of his neck.
Once they arrived in the area of Bloomfield Drive, the men took the victim's money and fled into some nearby woods. The victim was not injured.
The first suspect is a white male standing between 5 feet 8 inches and 6 feet tall, weighing between 150 and 175 pounds, with long blond hair and wearing blue jeans, a light-colored T-shirt and a jean jacket vest.
The second suspect is a white male standing between 5 feet 7 inches and 6 feet tall, weighing between 145 and 175 pounds, with short hair, wearing blue jeans and a gray hooded sweatshirt.
The second suspect was armed with a handgun of an unknown type, Fournier said.
