Pizza men targeted in Md. robberies

Pizza delivery men in Anne Arundel County were victims in two separate robberies over the weekend, authorities said.

Both robberies, which police said are likely linked, occurred in the same neighborhood and involved delivery men showing up with pies at vacant apartments where they were forced inside and restrained, police said.

In the first incident about 8 p.m. Saturday, a Champs Pizza & Subs delivery man was accosted at knifepoint by five male suspects when he showed up at an apartment on Glen Ridge Circle, police said. The suspects made off with his cash, and left the 20-year-old victim with minor injuries, police said.

Around the same time Sunday, about two blocks from the earlier attack, a Pizza City delivery man was assaulted by two men when he arrived at an apartment on Glen Ridge Road, police said. The suspects stole the 20-year-old victim's cash and other belongings, then took off in his car, the victim told police. Officers searched the area with a canine team but came up empty.

A Glen Burnie man, 21-year-old Christopher Hamlett, was arrested and charged in the Saturday robbery, police said. Authorities are seeking other suspects based on the following descriptions:



-- A black man in his 20s, about 5-feet-8 with a stocky build and possible dreadlocks, wearing a sleeveless T-shirt and a black do-rag
-- A black man in his 20s, about 5-feet-8 with a stocky build, short hair, and wearing a red hat, a black T-shirt and khaki shorts
-- A white man in his 20s, about 6 feet tall with red hair, wearing a black do-rag and blue jeans
-- A white male, about 6-feet-1 with a thin build, wearing a white face mask and a white T-shirt with blue designs
-- A white male, about 6 feet tall with short hair and glasses, wearing a black T-shirt


Anyone with information is asked to call 410-222-6135.

It took 5 people to rob a pizza delivery man? If they got $50 total I'd be shocked. All 5 able bodied men could have made more than that standing on the side of a road holding a sign for an hour. These are the men who need to be at day labor sites looking for work.

Bi-racial wolfpack? There's something new and unusual!

How much money can a pizza man have on him at one given time - $10 or $15? You'll going to jail for $12 on armed robbery charges-that's why people are buying guns because of idiots like this.

Anyone who doesn't know after all these years that pizza delivery men don't carry much cash deserves to be caught...

Just like Jay Leno says at nite "dumnb criminals" and let's not be fooled that this was his first stickup job...how about the other one in that vicinity??? Coincidence?????

Wow, five guys on a pizza delivery man? And by knifepoint? I bet they got $20 between the five of them. Get a freakin job. Now my taxes go up paying to house and feed you. Ridiculous

These biracial wolfpacks need to go after the real problems illegal day laborers and MS-13 gang members and the businesses that employ these illegals should be robbed by these wolfpacks.

Those 18-24 are also adults. It's good that a young man who was involved in the roberries against the food delivery persons has been arrested. It's ideal when food delivery persons deliver to a home where the customer can pay and tip the delivery person but not robbery.
