PIKE CREEK, Del. (AP) - State police say they’ve identified a suspect in the attempted armed robbery of a woman outside a liquor store.

Police say on Thursday afternoon, a man with a knife got into a car while the female driver was parked with her three children in the back seat. Police say the man demanded money from the woman, who told him she didn’t have any cash.

Police say the man tried to talk the woman into driving to an ATM. When the woman refused, police say the man grabbed her keys, threw them out the window and then fled on foot.

Late Saturday, police announced they’ve identified 25-year-old Phillip Pepe as a suspect. He’s been charged in a warrant with attempted robbery, weapons offenses and endangering the welfare of a child.
