  • Dover Police are investigating an armed robbery at a local convenience store.
    The holdup occurred at 10:13 p.m. May 6 at the U.S. Gas station at the corner of Bay and South Little Creek roads, said police spokesman Cpl. Mark Hoffman.
    Four men came into the store, displayed a number of weapons and demanded cash. They fled after receiving an undisclosed amount of money.
    All of the men were wearing hooded sweatshirts, gloves and facial disguises, Hoffman said. One of the weapons was a handgun and the other appeared to be a shotgun, he added.
    There were no reported injuries.
    Detectives hope that the distinctive pattern on the white sweatshirt one of the suspects is wearing, as well as the pattern on his shoes, will help identify him.
    This is the second time in less than two months there has been an armed robbery at this location.
    On March 18, a gunman held up the convenience store; a suspect in that robbery, identified as Maurice Parker, was arrested March 30.
    Hoffman said because there were four people involved in this robbery, detectives may have more clues to work with in solving it.
    “It is always a challenge to solve major crimes in a timely manner, however when several people are involved it opens up the possibility that one or more persons may make a mistake or leave a clue that can lead to the solving of that particular crime,” he said.
    “It is not something that our detectives depend on by any means, but can be helpful if it does happen.”
    Hoffman asked that anyone with information on this crime call Dover Police at 736-7111.
