Another pizza deliverer robbed, this time at gunpoint

A 33-year-old J.B. Alberto’s pizza delivery man was robbed of his valuables while delivering pizza Monday evening.

The Chicago resident was delivering pizza in the 700 block of Dodge Avenue at 7:25 p.m. Monday when he was approached by two men wearing all black clothing, he reported to police. One of the men, about 18 to 20 years of age, displayed a handgun and demanded his valuables. The delivery man turned over the pizza, an iPhone 3 and $7 in cash. The unknown men took the items then fled on foot.

The man targeted Monday is not the same J.B. Alberto’s pizza delivery driver who was robbed earlier this month, Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said.
