Pizza delivery man stops robbery attempt with metal pipe

A pizza delivery driver fought off five would-be robbers with a metal pipe Friday in Glen Burnie, Anne Arundel County police said.

One of the suspects assaulted the 24-year-old driver around 7:30 p.m. when he exited his vehicle to make the delivery. Five suspects approached the driver and tried to rob him. One man assaulted the victim who fought off the suspects using a metal pipe he had with him. The suspects didn't get anything from the Pizza Hut driver, police said.

Several officers including a K-9 and aviation unit were called in to search the area. While canvassing the area, police found three suspects running and hiding from officers. They arrested three juveniles — a 13-year-old boy and two 14-year-old boys — and charged them as juveniles with robbery, second-degree assault and reckless endangerment.

It was the second time this month that a Glen Burnie pizza delivery driver faced robbers. On Dec. 4, police said, a 46-year-old man was delivering pizzas to a house on the 600 block of Leprechaun Lane at 7:37 p.m. when two men approached him. One displayed a knife and demanded cash, police said. The driver gave the suspects an undisclosed amount of money while one of the suspects stole the pizzas.

The suspects of the Dec. 4 incident ran toward Four Leaf Clover Drive. They are described as black men. One is 6 feet tall wearing a dark sweatshirt with a hood and khaki pants. The other is described as 5 feet 7 inches tall who wore a dark scarf over the lower portion of his face.
