INDIANAPOLIS – Two pizza delivery drivers were robbed just minutes apart Wednesday night.
According to reports from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, both incidents happened just before 10 p.m.
In the first robbery, a Domino’s Pizza employee was walking to a home in the 3300 block of Ashley Lane around 9:45 p.m. when a teenager approached him with a gun. The juvenile—described in the report as a “thin black male”—grabbed the employee by the collar and forced him to the ground.
A second juvenile then came from behind the building. The teens took the employee’s pizzas and got away with $14 after going through the worker’s pockets.
About five minutes later, a Hotbox Pizza employee tried to deliver a pizza in the 3700 block of North Meridian Street. The driver realized he had a problem with the address since it was an apartment building and he didn’t have an apartment number.
When he turned to go back to his car, he was approached by a man wearing a black hoodie who carried a semi-automatic handgun. The man told him to “give him all his money,” the report said. The deliveryman handed over about $150 from his pocket. The man also took a pizza before running away.
