Two robbers got away with stolen cash and three boxes of pizza after a bogus delivery order was made in Concord Friday evening, a police sergeant said. Someone ordered a pizza from the Round Table Pizza at Olivera Crossing Shopping Center to a house about a mile away in the 2700 block of La Salle Avenue. A pizza deliverer brought the pizza to the address given from the order around 6 p.m., according to Concord police Sgt. Matt Morrissey. The victim was sitting in the car with three pizzas when he was approached by two male suspects, one of whom was armed.
They demanded money and ran off with an undisclosed amount of cash and the three pizzas, Morrissey said. No one was injured from the robbery, Morrissey said. Witnesses told police the pair was seen running into a green Ford Escort and driving away. The first suspect is believed to have been carrying a black semi-automatic handgun. He is described as a white or Hispanic man in his mid 20s, standing about 5 foot 6 inches tall with a stocky frame.
He was wearing a black jacket and red baseball cap, Morrissey said. An unarmed accomplice is described as a Samoan man in his early 20s with a thin, 6 foot 1 inch build with long, bushy hair. He was wearing a black puffy jacket. The delivery address was determined to be a vacant home and under construction, Morrissey said. The number the order was made from was not traceable and the number the suspects left with Round Table for the order was traced to a person who had no connection to a Friday night pizza order, Morrissey said. Morrissey advised all resident to be careful during the holidays as “people do things like this” around this season.
