Pizza delivery man robbed at knifepoint

by Wes Mayer

Another armed robbery against a pizza delivery man occurred in Newnan this week. However, this instance involved ransacking the victim's vehicle, according to authorities.

On Monday, around 11:07 p.m., Newnan Police Officer Abraham Bordeaux responded to Maple Hill Drive in the Heritage Ridge neighborhood off Lower Fayetteville Road in reference to a pizza delivery man being robbed at knifepoint.

Bordeaux reported in his incident report that he met with the victim, who said when he'd arrived at the address to deliver the pizzas, a man approached from the left side of the home wielding a knife.

According to Bordeaux, the suspect stole the two large pizzas and 14 wings the victim was delivering, along with the victim's money, cell phone and vehicle - the suspect said he would park the vehicle down the street, and that the victim should look for it in five minutes. The vehicle was later discovered on Park Lane Circle, and it had been ransacked, according to Bordeaux. The victim's wallet was also missing.

The victim described the suspect as a black male, about 6 feet tall and 160 pounds, according to the report. The suspect was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with a blue bandana covering his face, and the knife had a silver blade about 5 inches long.

The scene was turned over to Sgt. Chad Wood with the Newnan Police Department.

- Coweta County investigators are asking for assistance in identifying a suspect they say robbed a pizza delivery man on Dec. 14.

Around 9 p.m., a man was robbed at knifepoint after discovering the home he was delivering a pizza to - on Paw Paw Lane off Shenandoah Boulevard - was vacant, said Sgt. Jason Fetner with the Coweta County Sheriff's Office.

The suspect approached the delivery man wielding a stiletto or switchblade-style knife, Fetner said, and he ordered the victim to empty his pockets. The suspect then fled the area on foot with the victim's wallet, $65 and the pizza.
