Kennett Square Police: Armed robbers sought

Kennett Square Police are seeking the public’s help to apprehend the armed robbers who hit a borough business on Saturday, April 11, at 5:50 a.m.


Anyone with information about Saturday's alleged armed robbery is asked to call Kennett Square Police at 610-268-3171.

Police said they responded to 700 W. Cypress St. and learned that two males wearing all black clothing – both armed with handguns – entered Tienda Mexicana La Pequena II, the store at the Kennett Gas & Go, and took an undetermined amount of cash. The suspects also stole a cellphone from one of the employees and fled on foot in an unknown direction, a press release said.

The release said both suspects were also wearing masks, and estimated to be in their mid- to late-20s. One suspect was light skinned, about 5-foot-10, with a medium build; the other was slightly shorter and smaller than the first. One of the actors had a piercing above his left eye, and both suspects spoke Spanish, the release said.

Police said the stolen cellphone was recovered a short time later in Hockessin, De., lying on the road. The Kennett Square Police Department said it received assistance from the New Garden Township Police and the New Castle County Police in Delaware.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Kennett Square Police at 610-268-3171.
