Pizza delivery drivers robbed at gunpoint at same place

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Dayton police need your help finding the suspects in two pizza delivery driver robberies.

Both armed robberies happened in front of a vacant home in the 900 block of Huron Avenue.

The  first happened just before 1:00 Wednesday morning.

Police reports state that someone called and ordered pizza from that home.

According to the police report, the Cousin Vinny’s Pizza delivery driver says a man showed a gun and ordered him to get out of his car.  When he was on the ground, two other suspects appeared, took his wallet and money and fled to nearby apartments on James H McGee Boulevard while the suspect with the gun took off in his car.

The pizza delivery driver wasn’t hurt.

A similar incident happened just before 4:00 Tuesday afternoon.  This time, a Domino’s delivery driver was robbed at gunpoint.

The 911 caller states that a young boy put a gun up to the driver’s head and took money and pizzas and then ran across the street to those same apartments.

A Domino’s Pizza spokesperson says drivers are trained on how to respond in the event of a robbery and they are not allowed to carry more than $20 or wear any jewelry other than a wedding ring.

Cousin Vinny’s Pizza tells us their delivery drivers don’t carry change and they don’t get out of the car.

If you have any information that may help police catch these suspects, call Crime Stoppers at 222-7867.
