  • UPDATE:
    Dover Police arrested Antonio Steven on July 9 after he turned himself in, said police spokesman Cpl. Mark Hoffman.
    Stevens surrendered after learning via Facebook a warrant had been issued for his arrest, Hoffman said.
    The Dover resident, who lives in the 1000 block of White Oak Road, has been jailed without bond at the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center, Smyrna.
    ORIGINAL STORY:
    Dover Police have named 22-year-old Antonio Stevens of Dover as a suspect in an armed robbery during the Firefly Music Festival.
    The robbery took place at 2:47 a.m. June 21, said police spokesman Cpl. Mark Hoffman.
    The police investigation showed Stevens had hired a pedicab to take him from the festival to the area of Lakeview and Sunset drives, Hoffman said. Upon arrival, Stevens allegedly put a handgun in the driver’s back and demanded his cash and personal belongings.
    Stevens fled toward the vicinity of the Dover Inn and a Delaware State Police K9 tracked him to that area; police called the victim’s cell phone, later finding it on the hotel roof.
    Stevens also was identified using surveillance footage from hotel security cameras, Hoffman said.
    Warrants have been obtained charging Stevens with first-degree robbery, Possession of Firearm by person prohibited, possession of firearm during commission of a felony and offensive touching.
    Anyone with information as to Stevens’ whereabouts is asked to call Dover Police at 736-7111.
