Domino's Delivery Man Robbed at Knifepoint for Pizzas

SPOKANE, Wash - Spokane Police are investigating the robbery of a pizza delivery man who was robbed Sunday night. The thieves didn't take any money, they stole his pizzas instead that the employee was delivering in North Spokane.

The Dominos Pizza employee, named Steve, told police that when he arrived around 7 p.m. to deliver pizzas on the 1200 block of North Oak Street, a man with a knife demanded the pizzas. The man was accompanied by a young woman.

Police said the man with the knife made slashing motions toward Steve. The robbers then took four of the five pizzas and ran away. Witnesses told police they ran into a nearby apartment complex, which police searched unsuccessfully.

Neighbor Jacob Wardell couldn't believe robbers would potentially harm a delivery person. "He's the guy out there trying to make a buck, trying to work hard just doing his job," Wardell said. "You don't want to walk up the steps and have your life threatened over a couple of pizzas!"

Dominos employees did not want release Steve's last name or make a statement since the case is on-going.

The incident shook up the neighbors in the area. "It's very concerning, especially having a kid," Jayson McConnell said. "What if I was just taking my baby for a walk? Who would come out and rob me?"

Following an investigation, Spokane Police discovered the name of the 15-year-old girl, by tracing a cell number she used to make a delivery at Dominos, and charged her with first-degree robbery. Police are still looking for the man who wielded the knife.

Anyone with information should call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233 and use Incident No. 12-028999.
