Bogus delivery leads to robbery


A 75-year-old Alexandria area man was robbed at gunpoint by three men who had apparently placed a bogus order for a pizza.

According to Fairfax County police, the victim drove to a home in the 9200 block of Heather Ridge Court in the Lorton-area to deliver pizza. The occupants of the home informed the driver they had not ordered a pizza. As the victim walked back to his car, the three suspects jumped out from behind a parked car, one brandished a hand gun and demanded money. The victim handed over an undisclosed amount of cash and the pizza and was not injured. The suspects fled on foot.

All three suspects were described as black and about 21 years old. Two of the suspects were approximately 6-feet tall and weighed about 190 pounds. The third suspect was about 5-feet, 8-inches tall and weighed approximately 160 pounds. The trio all wore black, long sleeve shirts, black pants and a white cloth covering their faces.
