Pizza Man Robbed At Gunpoint In Vacant Home

Dover – The Dover Police Department is investigating the armed robbery of a pizza delivery employee that occurred on Wednesday night, December 21, 2016 , according to Dover Police Spokesman M/Cpl. Mark Hoffman.

Hoffman said that at approximately 8:50 p.m., the 35-year-old male pizza man was delivering food to a home in the 100 Block of Holmes Street in Dover. Upon arrival, he was invited inside the home by a black male suspect, said Hoffman. A second black male suspect was inside the residence with a red bandanna covering his face and silver handgun. He demanded that the victim empty his pockets, according to Hoffman.

The suspects stole cash, a cell phone, an iPod, and the food from the driver and ordered him to leave the home before fleeing themselves. Officers checked the residence and determined it was a vacant home.
