Delivery Man Robbed At Gunpoint, Two Make Off With Money, Phone And Food


Seaford – The Delaware State Police are investigating a robbery of a delivery man that occurred Friday evening, according to Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Gary Fournier.

Fournier said the preliminary investigation has determined the incident occurred on Friday, December 1, 2017 at approximately 9:30 p.m., when a 20-year-old male delivery man, employed by Café Milano in Blades, returned to the business to report that he had been robbed.

The driver attempted to deliver an order to an address in the 10000 block of Concord Road and found that the address given didn’t exist, according to Fournier. When he phoned the number provided by the customer, he was given directions to drive down a long dirt road to the residence.

When he approached to door, two subjects came from the rear of the house, one armed with a handgun, said Fournier. The subject with the gun demanded his money and the delivery man turned over an undisclosed amount of cash, according to Fournier. The second suspect began rummaging through the victim’s car and removed his cell phone and the food order before the two suspect fled back around the rear of the house.

The victim was not injured and returned to his place of business before contacting troopers.

The first suspect is described as a black male, 18-25 years of age, 6’00”-6’01” tall., wearing all black with a mask over his face (no further clothing or physical description). Armed with an unknown type handgun.

The second suspect was only described as a male wearing all black clothing with a mask over his face. Unknown if he was armed with any weapon.
