Another food delivery driver was robbed at gunpoint in the 4600 block of Olive St., but this time it wasn’t pizza the robber was ordering.

A China House delivery driver was headed toward the residence at 10 p.m. Wednesday when he was approached by a male who displayed a handgun. The suspect took the delivery driver’s money and fled the scene.

The suspect was described as being about 17-years-old.

This is the second time in two days that a delivery driver has been robbed in the 4600 block of Olive St. A pizza delivery man was robbed at gunpoint at 9:43 p.m. Tuesday.
