SUBJECT:3 JUVENILES ARRESTED FOR ROBBING PIZZA DELIVERYMAN

Three boys (two 15-year-olds and a 14-year-old) have been arrested for robbing a pizza deliveryman on Victory Avenue at about 4:45 Tuesday afternoon.

The boys phoned in a fictitious food order to Nico’s Pizza for delivery to a vacant house at 205 Victory Avenue. When the deliveryman knocked on the front door, the boys pushed him inside and robbed him of his money and cell phone. One of them displayed what appeared to be a handgun. The driver was not hurt.

After the robbery, the suspects were seen running into a residence on Victory Avenue. Patrol officers located 2 of the suspects there and took them into custody. The third suspect turned himself in at Police Headquarters this morning.

It was determined that a fake gun was used in the robbery.

All 3 boys have been charged with Robbery-2nd degree. They have been petitioned to Family Court and were turned over to their parents
