Pizza delivery man robbed of four pizzas

A pizza delivery man was robbed Sunday night of four of the five pizzas he was delivering in North Spokane.

Police believe that one of the robbers was a 15-year-old girl. They are still trying to determine the identity of the knife-wielding man she was with, news release from the Spokane Police Department said.

The Dominoes Pizza employee told police that when he arrived around 7 p.m. to deliver pizzas on the 1200 block of North Oak Street, a man with a knife demanded the pizzas. The man was accompanied by a young woman.

The man with the knife made slashing motions toward the delivery man, the release said. The robbers took four of the five pizzas and fled to the northwest. Witnesses told police they ran into a nearby apartment complex, which police searched unsuccessfully.

Following an investigation, Officer Elina Bishop discovered the name of the female robber. Police have probable cause to charge the 15-year-old girl with first-degree robbery when she is located, the release said.

Anyone with information should call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233 and use Incident No. 12-028999.
