Delivery Driver's Nose Broken During Robbery

A Papa John's Pizza delivery driver was robbed in Lexington.
The worker called police from the store on Saron Drive.

The driver told police he was making a delivery on Tatesbrook Drive when a man opened the door, punched him in the face and stole some money and pizza.

The worker was treated for a broken nose.

We're told the apartment where he made the delivery was vacant.

The suspect is described as a young black man between 17 and 18 years old, standing around 5'10". At the time, he was wearing a white shirt and black shorts or dark pants.

Police say there were two other people inside the apartment at the time, but the victim didn't get a good look at him since he had blurred vision after being assaulted.

So far, no arrest in the case.

    I agree. I think the police need to institue a program to pose a delivery drivers so that news will get around that you may be robbing a cop. That will certainly make people think twice before ordering a robbery!

    Seems like this is a growing trend. Sounds like a few criminals are going to ruin the delivery service for the rest of us. Sounds like it is time for these people to reconsider delivering and have customers pick up their food instead.
