The incident unfolded on the afternoon of Thursday, February 29th, when Delaware State Police reported two robbery suspects had fled from a traffic stop and crossed into the Garden State.

Troopers in New Jersey were able to identify and locate the suspects, 25-year-old Michael Larbi and a 16-year-old male, both from Dover, at the Woodrow Wilson Service Area on the Turnpike in Hamilton Township, Mercer County.

Authorities say as the troopers descended upon the pair, Larbi attempted to flee on foot before both suspects were arrested without incident.
