Police Blotter: Pizza Delivery Man Won't Go Out Back

Wednesday, November 6, 2013

A pizza delivery man said two youths tried to lure him behind a building, but he refused.

The delivery man for Papa John's on Broad Street said an order came in for a delivery to 201 W. 37th St. He said he knocked at the door and the residents said they had not ordered a pizza.

He called "Marcus" who had ordered the pizza and he came up and asked if he had change for $100. Marcus, who was identified as a black male between 14 and 20 years old, asked the delivery man to come behind the building.

A second black male, also between 14 and 20 years old with long dreads with a blonde streak, also wanted him behind the building.

The delivery man drove off with his pizza.

A female told police that someone broke into her Mini Cooper while she was parked near the rowing center on Riverside Drive setting up for the "Head of the Hooch" regatta.

Items taken included her $200 purse, two collectible pocket knives worth $200 and a $500 pair of prescription sunglasses.

Fortunately, her money and identification were not in the purse.

She said there have been similar break-ins at the same parking lot in recent days.

The combatant then got back in the cab and it drove off.

She said the "punch recipient" made no complaint to her.
