Delivery Driver Turns Tables On Robbers Featured

Written by

Akron Police are investigating a robbery and attempted robbery they say are connected. 

Both incidents happened in the same area along Fourth Avenue Monday and both involved pizza delivery drivers. 

According to the APD report, a Domino's Pizza delivery driver flagged down an officer at about noon Monday in the 1100 block of 4th Avenue. The victim told police that he drove up to a vacant home and tried to call the number on the order ticket. While making that call, the victim says he was approached by two men, one of whom pulled a gun demanding his money and the food. 

That driver described the suspects as two black males between 16 and 18-years-old. 

The second incident was an attempted robbery at the same location around 7 p.m., but this time a driver for Papa John's pulled out his own gun when he was approached by three black males who came from behind the vacant home.

Police say no shots were fired and that the suspects, who the victim says were between 15 and 18-years-old, took off running. 

Anyone with information is asked to call Akron Police.
