Pair Picked by Police for Parking Lot Purloining & Assault on Elderly Lady
NEWARK, DEL. – Who would be such low down dirty, no-good scoundrels as to mug an old woman in a store parking lot, steal her purse and then give her a good shove? Apparently the aforementioned alleged dirtbags are those shown here, according to the Delaware State Police.
Delaware State Police robbery unit detectives have arrested two suspects in connection with the robbery of an elderly female which occurred in the parking lot of the Kohl’s Department store located in Glasgow on August 8, 2015.
Through multiple interviews and other investigative means, detectives were able to identify Pierson Wilson, 52, of Elkton, MD, as the suspect who approached an 84-year-old female in the parking lot of the Kohl’s located at 2800 Pulaski Highway, Newark, on Saturday, August 8, 2015. Wilson then grabbed the victim’s purse and pushed her to the ground before fleeing in a Chevrolet truck, which detectives determined was being operated by Jennifer Brumbley, 44, also of Elkton.
The incident occurred at approximately 12:15 p.m., Saturday August 8, 2015 in the Kohl’s parking lot located at 2800 Pulaski Highway. The suspect then entered into a white Chevrolet S10 pickup truck with the purse and fled the area. The victim was transported by EMS to Christiana Emergency Room where she was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
Delaware State Police robbery unit detectives, with the assistance of detectives from the Elkton, Maryland Police Department, were able to take Jennifer Brumbley into custody without incident at her residence. She was subsequently arrested and charged with Robbery 1st Degree and Conspiracy 2nd Degree. Brumbley was arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court 2 and committed to the Delores Baylor Correctional Institution for lack of $50,000.00 secured bail.
Pierson Wilson was taken into custody yesterday, Wednesday, August 12, 2015, by officers from the Elkton Police Department after he was located on Main Street in Elkton. Wilson was committed to the Cecil County Correctional Center on a fugitive warrant pending his extradition to Delaware. He will also be charged with Robbery 1st Degree and Conspiracy 2nd Degree upon his return.
