Suspects are Jawann Butcher, 16, Hanna Ellis, 16 and Aliah Stone, 13, all of Dover, and Alton Kinsey, 16.
Three teens thought to have taken part in the Oct. 25 robbery and assault of a female Domino’s pizza delivery driver have been arrested.
Dover Police Department spokesman Master Cpl. Mark Hoffman said the trio, along with a fourth teenager, were arrested after a Papa John’s Pizza driver was assaulted and robbed the following night.
Hoffman said t about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 26 when the 23-year-old driver went to deliver a pizza in the 800 block of Townsend Boulevard. He was punched in the head and face as he got out of his vehicle, causing him to fall down. The four assailants took cash and the pizza before running away.
Detectives quickly identified one of the female suspects following a disorderly persons complaint at the Fairfield Inn on Jefferic Boulevard, Hoffman said. Based on that information, they found another suspect who was wearing a GPS monitor from Delaware Juvenile Probation. With that data, they went to a home in the 500 block of Buckson Drive, where they found empty Papa John’s boxes and containers outside that matched what had been ordered.
The four suspects were found inside the home and arrested without incident, Hoffman said.
They have been identified as Jawann Butcher, 16, Hanna Ellis, 16 and Aliah Stone, 13, all of Dover.
Hoffman said each is charged with two counts of second-degree robbery, second-degree conspiracy and third-degree assault. The charges are based on both robberies.
The fourth teen, Alton Kinsey, 16, is charged with single counts of second-degree robbery, second-degree conspiracy and third-degree assault.
Hoffman said the Butcher, Ellis and Stone were suspects in the Oct. 25 assault and robbery of a Domino’s driver that took place in Mapleton Square. In that incident, the driver was attacked from behind and was punched and kicked in the head and chest before her food and money were taken.
