  • Two Felton men wanted in connection with the armed mugging of a man in Harrington were both arrested in Dover on Tuesday.
    Ray B. Wilson, 18, and Mahdi Wilson, 20, are not related but did work together to steal money from a Harrington man on Monday, according to Harrington Police Department spokesman Lt. Earl Brode.
    Ray Wilson picked up the male victim at his place of employment sometime before 9:45 p.m. and drove him to the 300 block of Dorman Street, where Mahdi Wilson approached the car, displayed a handgun and took an undisclosed amount of cash from the man, Brode said.
    The victim was able to get out of the car and immediately call police, while the two Felton men reportedly fled the area in a white 1995 Nissan Maxima.
    Harrington police later were able to identify Ray Wilson and alerted other police agencies to be on the lookout for his vehicle.
    The following day, police stopped the vehicle and arrested the driver, Mahdi Wilson, after locating a handgun in the car.
    After determining Mahdi Wilson was the gunmen in the Harrington stick-up, Dover Police were soon able to locate Ray Wilson, who also was taken into custody, Brode said.
    Ray Wilson and Mahdi Wilson each is charged with first-degree robbery, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, wearing a disguise during the commission of a felony, conspiracy and theft.
    Brode said Mahdi Wilson also is facing gun charges in Dover, although information about those charges was not immediately available.
    Ray Wilson is being held at the Sussex Correctional Institute in Georgetown on a $30,000 secured bond.
    Mahdi Wilson’s status and bond information was not available.
