WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Police are searching for two suspects after they say a delivery driver was punched in the face and then robbed at gunpoint Thursday night.
It happened just after 10:30 p.m. when they say a driver for Peking Gourmet was delivering food to 1512 Dock Street. Police say when the driver was walking up to the house with the food, he noticed a man sitting on the porch.
That’s when police say the man got up and punched the driver in the face, knocking him to the ground. The driver told police another man then came out of nowhere, pulled out a semi-automatic handgun and demanded money.
Police say the duo robbed the delivery driver of his money and cell phone, and then forced him to walk east on Dock Street. The suspects are described as black males, one of which is heavy set, at around 5’8″ with an afro, wearing a black and white shirt and tan shorts. Police say the suspect with the gun is about 6’1″ and was wearing a blue hoodie.
No word on how much money the two got away with.
