Food Delivery Driver Robbed In Lincoln Park; Third Delivery Person Held Up Since Sunday


Another North Side restaurant delivery driver was robbed early today in Lincoln Park. It’s at least the third hold-up of a food delivery person on the North Side since Sunday evening.


Police said a woman went to the 2600 block of North Mildred around midnight to drop off food from a nearby Thai restaurant. Two men confronted her as she approached the delivery address and one of the men flashed a handgun in his waistband.

One robber wore an orange jacket. He was white, about 6-feet tall and 190 pounds.

The other man wore a black jacket with a hoodie and was armed with a nickel-plated handgun. He was black, 5’8” tall, 170 pounds, and cleanly shaven.

On Sunday evening, delivery drivers were robbed in the 4200 block of North Winchester in North Center and the 4400 block of North Greenview in Uptown.

Police issued a community alert about Sunday’s hold-ups yesterday.

The Winchester robbers are described as two black men 20- to 22-years-old. One is about 6-feet tall and weighs 180 pounds. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with black jeans. The other man is about 5’7” tall.

On Greenview, both offenders were black men who wore black ski masks, police said. Both are believed to be 17- to 20-years-old. One stood about 5’10” tall and weighed 160-180 pounds.
