ANOTHER ROBBERY: Pizza Delivery Driver Assaulted
Another pizza delivery driver in Des Moines has reported an attempted robbery. It’s the fifth time a driver has been targeted in the past week.
Police say a driver for Papa John’s went to a home in the 1300 block of Ascension Street around 10:30 Tuesday night.
A man on the front porch told the driver to hand over all his money. The driver said he only had $20 and went back to his truck. There, a second suspect was rifling through the vehicle.
Both men reportedly assaulted the pizza delivery driver, but the driver was able to escape.
Police say a driver from a different pizza shop reported being robbed at the same address on Friday morning.
