A pizza delivery man was just doing his job when a crook accosted him with a knife and demanded all his money.
The victim had just dropped off an order at a home on 315 Lionstone Dr., near Platte and Murray, when the suspect approached him. The victim tried to escape by running, but the suspect quickly caught up to him. This time, the suspect demanded the victim's car keys as well.
Police say the victim threw cash and the keys on the ground, and the suspect took the money and ran off. He was last seen cutting through an apartment complex on 210 N. Murray, headed in a westbound direction.
The victim soon spotted police patrolling the area and flagged them down. Several officers were then sent to the area to search for the suspect, but they were unable to locate him.
The suspect is described as a black male dressed almost head-to-toe in dark clothing, including a black beanie cap. Only his shoes were a different color; the victim reported that he was wearing white shoes. The suspect is reportedly 6 feet tall.
If you have any information on his whereabouts, call the Colorado Springs Police Department at 444-7000 or Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.
