Date Posted: Tuesday, February 27th, 2018

Border Cafe

Newark – Delaware State Police detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect wanted in an assault that occurred on Super Bowl Sunday.

The incident occurred at approximately 12:46 p.m., Sunday, February 4, 2018, in the parking lot of the Border Café, located at 483 Stanton-Christiana Road, Newark. The 43 year old male victim was driving through the parking lot of the adjacent Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant, when he was cut off by an unknown red vehicle, which prompted him to honk his horn. The victim then continued on to his intended destination of Border Café, at which time he was followed by the red vehicle. After exiting his vehicle the victim was approached by the other operator who proceeded to assault him by punching in the head and face multiple times. The victim was treated on scene by EMS before being admitted to the Christina Hospital with serious injuries.

The suspect is described as a white male, in his mid-30’s, with a light beard and wearing an Eagles jersey. The suspect was accompanied by a white female described as having a poor complexion, brown hair, wearing a knit hat and football jersey.

These suspects are believed to have been involved in a separate verbal altercation, with another subject, at the entrance to the service road leading to the parking lot, just prior to the assault occurring.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact Detective S. Rizzo of the Troop 2 Major Crimes Unit by calling 365-8440.
