Robbery of Delivery Person

August 1, 2009

On August 1, 2009 around 10:00PM, a person delivering Chinese food to an address in the 700 block of Cedar Ridge Lane was robbed. The suspect told the delivery person that he had a gun and told the delivery person to follow him. The delivery person dropped the food and fled on foot to a residence of nearby friends. The delivery person was not injured. The suspect was not located and the food that was being delivered was gone. It is possible that the suspect in this investigation made a robbery attempt earlier in the week. A check of the area revealed that an attempted delivery was made to a residence in the same neighborhood earlier in the week. The person who resides at the home of the attempted delivery told the delivery person that no one in the home ordered food and turned the delivery person away.

The suspect is described as a dark skinned male, approximately 5″ 10″ and at least 200 pounds. The suspect was wearing some type of mask covering his face.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Upper Allen Township Police Department at (717) 238-9676 or through our anonymous tip line at (717) 591-3790.
