Police are warning residents of two recent robberies of pizza delivery drivers that occurred on the same Humboldt Park neighborhood block last week on the West Side.

In both incidents, someone approached the delivery driver after an order has been placed, brandished a metal pole and then stole the driver’s pizza order and cash, according to Chicago Police.

In one incident, the suspects stole the driver’s vehicle, police said.

Both robberies occurred in the 1300 block of North Maplewood, one at 9:30 a.m. April 26 and the other at 9:50 p.m. April 29, police said.

One suspect is described as a 18- to 25-year-old white Hispanic man, standing between 5-feet-11 and 6-feet-2, weighing between 175 and 180 pounds, with short brown hair, brown eyes and a light complexion, police said. He was wearing a black or blue hooded sweatshirt and black jeans.

Another robber is described as a 20- to 25-year-old white Hispanic man, standing between 5-feet-6 and 5-feet-10, weighing between 160 and 180 pounds, with brown eyes, styled blond hair and a light complexion, police said. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and black jeans.

Anyone with information on the robberies is asked to contact Area North detectives at (312) 744-8263.
