A routine delivery ended in an armed robbery early Sunday morning, according to a report from the Riley County Police Department.
Lt. Herbert Crosby of the RCPD said a Domino’s delivery employee was delivering pizzas to 3031 James Ave. between 1:30 to 2 a.m.. He knocked on the door of the residence and was then approached by a man wearing a black hat, dark hoodie and dark bandana. The man was also carrying a handgun.
The man ordered the employee to the ground and demanded money from him. There was also another man in the distance who turned off the victim’s car, Crosby said.
Crosby also said the residence the pizza was delivered to was empty, and the two men involved in the incident were likely aware of that fact. The men fled with $15 in cash and $36 worth of food items.
There were several forced-entry burglaries over the weekend, according to reports from the RCPD.
Reginald Herring, 27, of 816 N. Juliette Ave. was the victim of one of those burglaries. The incident happened sometime between 2 and 5:15 p.m. on April 23.
An unknown person kicked in the back door of the residence, taking a 37-inch LGHD television worth $600, an Xbox 360 woth $500 and a $60 video game.
Another burglary happened at 2225 Idy Dr. sometime between 9:20 a.m. and 8:40 p.m. on April 23, when someone entered the rear window of the residence. An HP laptop belonging to Phuong Vo, 49, was taken, resulting in a loss of $1,000.
There were four attempted suicides over the weekend, one resulting in the death of a Manhattan man, 64, who died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound April 25.
