Police in Salem are investigating a string of robberies of pizza delivery drivers.

According to a press release this first incident happened on November 5 at approximately 10:25 p.m. in the area of Otter Avenue.

During their investigation they found that a pizza delivery driver had

been robbed by a black male with a light complexion. The suspect fled on foot with an undisclosed

amount of cash and was not located during the search.

The second robbery happened on November 26 at approximately 10:30 p.m. in the same area.
