Po­lice have charged a man with at­tempted murder fol­low­ing the Oct. 27 armed rob­bery of a man who had just re­turned to his res­i­dence with his wife.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, Myles J. Turner, 23, of Ne­wark, Delaware, was ap­pre­hended by Delaware State Po­lice on Nov. 1, and is cur­rently await­ing ex­tra­di­tion to Ch­ester County.

In ad­di­tion to at­tempted murder, he is also charged with crim­i­nal con­spir­acy to com­mit rob­bery, as­sault, weapons vi­o­la­tion, and other re­lated charges.

Another sus­pect in the al­leged crime, Aaron C. Mills, 24, with a last known ad­dress of New Cas­tle, Delaware, is cur­rently at large and po­lice have asked for the pub­lic’s help in find­ing him.

Po­lice said they have a war­rant for Mills’ ar­rest, and that he will be charged with crim­i­nal con­spir­acy to com­mit rob­bery, ag­gra­vated as­sault, and re­lated charges.

On Oct. 27, a cou­ple re­turn­ing home was robbed by a man wear­ing a ski mask and bran­dish­ing a firearm, who po­lice later iden­ti­fied as Turner.

Po­lice said they later stopped a car with both Mills and Turner in­side, but were not ar­rested be­cause the vic­tim had been hos­pi­tal­ized and was re­ceiv­ing treat­ment for his in­juries and could not make a pos­i­tive iden­ti­fi­ca­tion at that time.

Po­lice said that with­out a pos­i­tive iden­ti­fi­ca­tion, they had to in­ves­ti­gate fur­ther, which in­cluded get­ting a search war­rant for the ve­hi­cle which gave ev­i­dence of their in­volve­ment.

Dur­ing the rob­bery, Turner al­legedly or­dered the male vic­tim onto the ground, stole his valu­ables, and kicked him sev­eral times be­fore flee­ing the scene.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, the in­ci­dent oc­curred at about 11:45 p.m. Oct. 27 on Skyview Lane in Thorn­dale.

Po­lice said Turner al­legedly pointed the gun at the man while steal­ing from him, and re­port­edly wore a black ski mask that cov­ered his head and face above his top lip. His lips, mouth and cheeks were ex­posed.

Po­lice ask any­one with in­for­ma­tion re­lat­ing to this in­ci­dent to call 610383-1821.
