Delivery driver gets robbed by customers

SEAFORD, Del. - The Delaware State Police are investigating a robbery of a delivery man that occurred Friday evening.

Police say their preliminary investigation has determined that the incident occurred on Friday at approximately 9:30 p.m., when a 20-year-old 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 10,000 block of Concord Road, and found that the address given didn't exist. 

When the delivery driver called the number provided by the customer, he was given directions to drive down a long dirt road to the residence. When he approached the door, police say two subjects came out from the back of the house, one armed with a handgun. 

Police say the subject with the gun demanded the delivery drivers money. The delivery man complied and turned over cash.

The second suspect then began rummaging through the victim's car and removed his cell phone and the food order before the two suspects ran back around to the rear of the house.

The victim was not injured and returned to his place of business before calling police.

The first suspect is described as a black male, between 18 to 25 years of age, 6'00''-6'01'' tall, wearing all black with a mask over his face and armed with an unknown type of handgun.

The second suspect is described as a male wearing all black clothing with a mask over his face. It is currently unknown if he was armed with any weapon.

If anyone has any information in reference to this incident, they are asked to contact the Troop 4 Major Crimes Unit at 302-856-5850. Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, via the internet at www.delaware.crimestoppersweb.com.
