NEWARK, Del. -

Police in Newark say a jewelry store clerk suffered a broken hand after chasing the suspect in a robbery over the weekend.

The robbery happened just before 3 p.m. on Saturday at Anemoni Jewelers in the Shops at Louviers on Papermill Road.

According to police, the robbery suspect, who was wearing a tan striped shirt and tan pants, walked into the store and asked to see several pieces of jewelry.

After the clerk removed the jewelry from a display case, police say the suspect looked at it for several minutes, then grabbed it and ran out of the store.

The clerk, a 44-year-old man, chased after the suspect, who ran around the back of the store and into a nearby wooded area, police said.

When the suspect got into a tan Ford Explorer parked near the intersection of Longwood Lane and Hagley Court, police say the clerk jumped onto the hood.

The clerk was thrown off the vehicle when it sped away.

Investigators say the car the suspect was seen driving away in may have Maryland tags and damage to the front windshield wiper assembly.

The clerk was taken to Christiana Hospital.
