SHARE Police: Food delivery drivers targeted in North, NW side robberies

Police say food delivery drivers were targeted in a pair of armed robberies on the North and Northwest sides last weekend.

In the two Sunday evening robberies, two men — one of them armed with a handgun — walked up to the drivers as they made deliveries, knocking them to the ground and taking their money and valuables, according to a business alert from Chicago Police.

The first robbery happened at 6 p.m. in the 4400 block of North Mozart, followed by another attack 30 minutes later in the 1500 block of West Byron, the alert said.

The suspects are described as black men between 25 and 30 years old, wearing black or gray hooded sweatshirts. In one of the robberies, a suspect was about 5-foot-10 and 180 pounds, police said.

Anyone with information should call Area North detectives at (312) 744-8263.
