South Portland Police are looking for three armed robbery suspects after a pizza delivery driver was allegedly robbed Saturday night, Feb. 16 in the parking lot of the Olde English Village apartments at 499 Westbrook St. in South Portland.


South Portland Police Sgt. Steve Webster said in a media release the driver met an alleged customer, who police believe was involved in the robbery, in the apartment complex parking lot just before 10 p.m. While the customer was speaking with the driver, police say two males approached from a corner of the building, one armed with a knife, the other with a handgun.


The men demanded the driver turn over his money, and all three suspects fled in the same direction with a small amount of money and the pizza, Webster said. No one was injured.


The first two suspects were described as black males in their early 20s, 5 feet 6 inches tall and 5 feet 7 inches, each with a thin build. Both wore black hooded sweatshirts and black pants, one covered his face with a red bandana, the other with a red and gray bandana.


The third suspect was described as a dark-skinned black male, approximately 20 years old, 5 feet 5 inches and 120 pounds with “very crooked” front teeth.


Anyone with more information is asked to call Det. Steven Connors of the South Portland Police Department at 799-5511, ext. 7217.
