A lost delivery person was held up at gunpoint Monday night and robbed of cash and a cell phone — and the pizzas the driver was delivering. Here’s the SPD report on the incident:
On October 3rd, just before 10:00 pm, a pizza delivery driver was in the 500 Block of 22nd Avenue, looking for an address. When he couldn’t find the address, he got out of his car to take a better look. Three suspects, described as black males, approached him and one of them pointed a handgun at him. The suspects robbed the victim of pizzas, cash and a cell phone. The suspects then fled on foot, and the victim was able to run to a neighboring house and call 911. Officers arrived quickly and set up containment for a canine track, but the suspects were not located.
In the past — and still, for some, in the present — residents in the Central District have been frustrated by delivery “redlining” that left areas out of service coverage for some local restaurants.
