Delaware State Police say they've charged an inmate on work release in a robbery at a Milford motel and they're looking for a second suspect. Police have arrested 27-year-old Gilbert Deleon of Georgetown and are looking for 41-year-old Frederick Daniels of Georgetown.

Police say on June 5 the men forced their way into a room at the Super 8 Motel where a motel employees lives, then kicked and punched the employee. Police say while one of the men dropped a television on the employee repeatedly, the other ransacked the room.

Police say Deleon was on work release on the day of the robbery. He was arrested at the Sussex Correctional Facility and charged with first-degree robbery, second-degree burglary, second-degree conspiracy and wearing a disguise during the commission of a felony.
