Ne­wark Police seek help lo­cat­ing rob­bery de­fen­dant who skipped bail

Newark Post - - POLICE BLOTTER -

The Ne­wark Police Depart­ment and the state at­tor­ney general’s of­fice are ask­ing for the pub­lic’s help lo­cat­ing a rob­bery de­fen­dant who did not show up for his court date, au­thor­i­ties said.

Louis Hen­der­son, 24, was ar­rested Sept. 23, 2016, and was re­leased af­ter post­ing a $25,000 bond. How­ever, he did not ap­pear at court, and a judge is­sued two capi­ases for him, ac­cord­ing to an NPD spokesman.

Hen­der­son stands ac­cused of rob­bing a 28-year-old Univer­sity of Delaware stu­dent Aug. 17, 2016, on the side­walk near Stu­dio Green apart­ments, lo­cated in the unit block of Thorn Lane off Elk­ton Road.

The vic­tim was walk­ing with his bi­cy­cle just af­ter 1 a.m. when two as­sailants at­tacked him, police said. They stole his back­pack, con­tain­ing note­books and a lap­top com­puter, and then ran away.

Dur­ing the rob­bery, the vic­tim suf­fered in­juries to his ribs and lungs. He was treated by EMS and taken to Chris­tiana Hos­pi­tal.

A month later, police ar­rested Hen­der­son along with a sec­ond sus­pect, Der­rick Hud­son. Both men were charged with first-de­gree rob­bery and sec­ond-de­gree con­spir­acy.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about Hen­der­son’s where­abouts is asked to con­tact Det. Daniel Bys­tricky at 302-3667110 ext. 3136 or Delaware Crime Stop­pers at 1-800-TIP3333. Hen­der­son is known to fre­quent the casino at Delaware Park, as well as other lo­ca­tions in Ne­wark, Bear, New Cas­tle, Wilm­ing­ton and Salem, N.J.
