Police investigate string of pizza delivery drivers robbed

Posted: Updated:

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.

Police say that a pizza delivery driver, from a different company, also had been robbed by a black male matching the same description.

The suspect again ran from the scene, and at this time he has not been identified.

Salem Police Detectives believe the same person committed both robberies and their investigation has resulted in two composite sketches of the suspect.

Anyone having information about the crime or the identity of the suspect is asked to call the Salem

Police Department at (540)375-3078 or Roanoke Valley Crime Line (540)344-8500.
