Two food delivery drivers have been robbed at gunpoint while dropping off meals on a two-block stretch of Fargo Avenue in Rogers Park over the past week, according to a CPD alert. According to police, both victims were confronted by men with guns as they arrived to complete a delivery.
Most recently, a Pizza Hut driver was robbed and carjacked when he arrived with a delivery on the 2100 block of West Fargo at 5:50 p.m. Friday, police said.
Three young men came out of a building vestibule, pointed guns at the 60-year-old driver, and ordered him to hand over his keys, money, and phone, according to a CPD report. The offenders drove away with the man’s black Nissan Sentra, which had a Pizza Hut sign displayed on its roof. Cops found the car nearby a short time later, according to the police bulletin.
Three days earlier and two blocks away, a delivery driver for China Hut was robbed at gunpoint by three men who took his keys and valuables when he arrived with a food order on the 1900 block of West Fargo around 2 p.m. on June 29, a CPD report said.
The offenders didn’t take that man’s car, only his keys.
CPD’s community alert said the robbers are three Black males between 16- and 25-years-old who stand 5’5″ to 6-feet tall. One of them wore white shoes, a black North Face jacket, gloves, and a black mask during one of the robberies, according to the victim.
