Second pizza delivery man robbed in Castor Gardens

A 21-year-old delivery driver was robbed at gunpoint by two suspects Friday night on the 1200 block of Fanshawe Street, police said.


For the second time in less than a week, a pizza delivery man was robbed at gunpoint in Castor Gardens.

A 21-year-old driver from Big Ben Pizza in Burholme told police he was approached by two men Friday around 10:30 p.m. after delivering food on the 1200 block of Fanshawe Street. One of the men pointed a silver handgun at the delivery man and said: “Give me everything you got.”

After taking cash and the driver’s phone, the suspects fled the scene on foot. The delivery man was not injured, authorities said.

Both men were wearing hooded sweatshirts pulled tightly around their faces. Authorities described the armed suspect as a 5-foot 7-inch black man with dark complexion and a skinny build. He was wearing a gray sweatshirt. The second suspect is described as a 5-foot 11-inch black man with dark complexion and a very skinny build who was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt.

The Northeast Detective Division is actively investigating the robbery.  

Two days prior, a 17-year-old pizza boy was robbed at gunpoint by a group of men on the 1400 block of Friendship Street. ••
