Delaware State Police are looking for a man accused of robbing a Home Depot on Saturday morning in Wilmington, Delaware.

The man, who officers say took landscaping power tools from a display and then exited the store without paying, fled the store after he was approached by an employee, according to investigators. When approached, the man allegedly told the employee that he had a knife and to stay away from him. The employee reports that the man then fled on foot towards Society Drive. The employee was not injured.
