Ashland, Ore. – Ashland Police are searching for three men who allegedly robbed a pizza delivery driver.
Officers say that around 9:30 Monday evening, a pizza delivery driver went to a home on Mohawk Street attempting to deliver a pizza. The tenant said they didn’t order a pizza. The driver went back to her car, where she encountered a man saying he was the one that ordered the pizza.
According to police, while the driver was retrieving the pizza, she felt something hit her back. She turned around and noticed the man holding what she says looked like a stun-gun. Two other males reportedly approached her car, one was demanding money. The delivery driver surrendered the money and the pizza, and escaped in her vehicle.
Ashland Police Detectives say the three suspects are described as college-aged African American men. Two were wearing black hooded sweat shirts. The third was wearing a grey hooded sweat shirt and jeans. Officers say they’re associated with a silver Mercedes Benz with the possible partial Oregon plate numbers “214″.
