Two pizza delivery drivers were robbed at gunpoint just four hours apart Wednesday and early Thursday in north suburban Waukegan.

About 8 p.m. Wednesday, a delivery driver reported he was sent to the 4100 block of Continental Drive to deliver a pizza, according to Waukegan police.

When he arrived, he was approached by two black men in their late teens and one pulled out a gun, police said. The suspects took cash and the pizza, but the driver was not hurt.

Both suspects were described as about 5-foot-4 and slim, police said. One was wearing a red track jacket, white Nike shorts and had acne on his cheeks. The other was wearing a black and gold sweatshirt with a gold Chicago Bulls emblem, and light blue jeans.

About four hours later, another delivery driver reported he was sent to deliver a pizza to the 200 block of South Park Avenue, police said.

When he arrived about midnight, he was approached by ablack male and three Hispanic males, all wearing ski masks. One of the suspects pulled out a handgun and they stole the pizza, money and other personal property. The driver was not injured.

The drivers worked for different restaurants, police said, and the robberies are being investigated as separate incidents.

Anyone with information should call the Waukegan police tip line at (847) 360-9001.
