Pizza Delivery Driver Robbed At Gunpoint In Homestead
HOMESTEAD (KDKA) – A pizza delivery driver was allegedly robbed at gunpoint while making a late night delivery in Homestead Monday.
According to police, the incident happened on East 11th Avenue around midnight.
A pizza delivery driver thought he was making a normal delivery when he was approached by two men and allegedly robbed at gunpoint.
The driver from Capri Pizza had a female passenger along for the delivery.
However, when they got to the address it became evident the call was a ploy.
“When they got out of the car, they were approached by a young black male, brandishing a weapon and a second actor appeared,” Homestead Police Chief Jeff DeSimone said.
Chief DeSimone said the suspects got away with about $50 to $60 and also made off with the food.
“Once the act was committed, the actors fled through the rear of the yards and that’s all we have at this point,” Chief DeSimone said.
While the victims were only able to give vague descriptions to police of the suspects and the weapon, Chief DeSimone said they are working on some possible leads.
“We do have a cell phone number we’re going to try to follow up on,” Chief DeSimone said.
According to police, this is not the first time this particular driver or Capri Pizza has been the victim of a robbery.
Homestead Police are asking if you have any information to help in their investigation to give them a call at (412)-461-1344.
