Man wearing Halloween mask, carrying gun robs pizza delivery driver, police say

A pizza delivery driver was robbed Tuesday night of cash and food while trying to make a delivery on Madison’s east side, officials said.

A Pizza Hut employee was trying to deliver food around 10 p.m. to the 3400 block of Graceland Avenue when a man with a hooded sweatshirt cinched around his face approached him, according to a release. The man was on the front lawn of a residence, which was completely dark.

The delivery driver asked the man if he had ordered the pizzas, and the man told him to ring the bell, police said. When the delivery driver rang the bell, a second man ran up from behind him, demanding money.

The second man was wearing a Halloween mask and lifted up his sweatshirt so the delivery driver could see a handgun tucked in the robber’s waistband, according to the release.

The delivery driver gave up cash and the pizza before the two other men fled, police said. The men fled toward Straubel Street, but a police K-9 was not able to track the robbers.

The first man with the hooded sweatshirt cinched over his face is described as black, 5 feet 10 inches tall, about 160 pounds and skinny. He was also wearing sweatpants.

The second man was wearing a silver or chrome Halloween mask in the shape of a face, a hooded navy or black sweatshirt cinched over his face and black pants.
