Crime of the Week logo

Crime Stoppers is looking for help in solving a robbery to a pizza delivery person which occurred at the 1800 block of South 8th Street on Friday May 20th at about 11 o’clock in the evening.

As the victim approached a residence with the pizza’s, she was punched in the face by a 6 foot tall black male with a bald head who was wearing a blue hoodie. After she fell to the ground, three other males approached the victim and struck her and kicked her several times before running away on foot.

Crime Stoppers wants to pay anyone who knows who committed this robbery a cash reward for the identification and arrest of the persons responsible for this cowardly crime, and we’re going to pay a lot more than the few bucks these two bit thieves got in the robbery.

The first Dollar General robbery occurred about 8:30 p.m. Feb. 23 at 2015 North Grand Ave. E. Police said the robber approached the checkout area, displayed a handgun and demanded money.
