Pizza delivery man robbed at gunpoint

A 23-year-old pizza delivery man was robbed by two men at gunpoint early Tuesday morning. 

The Skokie resident got out of his car to make a Sarpino’s pizza delivery in the 300 block of Callan Avenue, Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said. No one answered the door at the residence, at which point two men approached the driver and each pulled out handguns. One of the men went through the driver’s pockets and took his iPhone. 

Police said the men then fled southbound from the location on foot.
