Delaware State Police are looking for a man who tried to rob an 8-year-old at knifepoint.
It happened about 5:15 p.m. near the intersection of Scoth Pine Drive and Loblolly Pine Drive in Dover. Troopers say the boy was walking home from a friend's house on Scotch Pine Drive when a man wearing a ski mask and armed with a knife approached him.
The man said he would stab the boy if he didn't give him money. The boy turned to run and the robber lunged at him with the knife.
The boy was not hurt and ran home. The robber escaped in a white-colored work van with tinted windows.
Police are asking anyone with information about the suspect or the crime to contact Delaware State Police Troop 3.
