Pizza delivery man robbed Sunday

A 46-year-old J.B. Alberto’s pizza delivery driver was robbed of all his money and the pizza he was delivering Sunday.

The robbery occurred at about 9 p.m. as the driver was delivering pizza orders to residents in the 1900 block of Jackson Avenue. He reported that two men ages 18 to 24 in all black clothing approached him as he entered a resident’s yard. The men demanded his money, and the driver responded by handing over his wallet, along with about $150, to one man while the other took the pizza. The two then ran away from the scene.

There were no injuries, Evanston Police spokesman Cmdr. Jay Parrott said.

Evanston resident’s house ransacked over weekend

A residence in the 900 block of Isabella Street, near the Evanston-Wilmette border, was broken into and ransacked this weekend.

The residence belongs to a 43-year-old woman who was out of town for the weekend, Parrott said. An employee of a nearby Wilmette office noticed the front door of the residence was ajar and notified EPD. After further investigation, the employee also saw the bathroom window had been pried open. Items taken include an Apple monitor, keypad and mouse, an IBM Thinkpad laptop, digital camera equipment and an Xbox gaming system, Parrott said.
