INDIANAPOLIS – A pizza delivery driver felt his life was in danger during a robbery Thursday night—but told police he was duped by a man with a stapler.
According to a report from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, the Papa John’s delivery driver pulled up to an address in the 300 block of N. Arsenal just before 10 p.m. and got out of his Jeep to make his delivery. He opened the driver’s side rear door to get the food, and then felt something in his back.
A man told him to “step away from the vehicle” and then took his wallet and cell phone. He also took the food sitting in the back.
As the man ran off, the driver noticed he didn’t have a gun; he was carrying a stapler. He ran after the other man but didn’t find him.
According to the report, the thief made off with more than $30 in wings and pizza, a $250 Samsung Galaxy phone, and the man’s wallet.
