Police: Pizza Delivery Driver with Concealed Permit Foils Ambush Robbery, Shoots Suspect

Police say a pizza delivery driver was “lured into a Northeast Philadelphia neighborhood” by two men but foiled the robbery attempt by opening fire on the suspects, wounding one.

The incident occurred just after 9:30 pm Saturday night.

According to CBS Philly, police said the 52-year-old driver had a concealed carry permit and drew his handgun after the two men allegedly “grabbed…[him] from behind” and took money from him. He struck one of the suspects in the ankle, causing both suspects to flee. Officers were able to “track the suspects to a nearby home” and arrest them.

Police indicate that “there have been a pattern of robberies” in the area in which pizza delivery drivers were targeted. They are investigating whether the two suspects in Saturday’s robbery attempt have any ties to the other incidents.
