A fight in downtown Newark on Tuesday evening ended when bystanders intervened, with one of participants robbed as well, Newark police said.

Security cameras that captured some of the action were used to release photos of suspects and their vehicle.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact M/Cpl Paul Keld at 302-366-7100 ext. 3106 or pkeld@newark.de.us.  Additional methods for providing information to Newark Police can be found on the department tips page, where reward information may also be available.

 

A male and female victim were walking on East Main Street near Haines Street at about 7:35 p.m. when a car drove past them, police said, and a white male in the car made a comment to the female victim.

The victims continued walking and within a few minutes were confronted by an unknown black male suspect and an unknown white male suspect. The victims recognized the white male suspect as the male who had just called out to the female victim.

The black male suspect told the male victim he was going to rob him – and property was taken from the male victim – and then attempted to punch him, police said.

The suspects began attacking both victims, and a second black male suspect started attacking the male victim, police said.

The assault continued until bystanders got involved, and the suspects fled in a black sedan on East Delaware Avenue.
