Deliveryman assaulted, robbed on Devon Place

A 20-year-old man delivering pizzas to a home in the 500 block of Devon Place was robbed and assaulted late Saturday, police said.

Timothy Johnson, working for Royal Pizza, was delivering two pizzas to 521 Devon Pl. about 11:10 p.m. when he said two men dressed in black ran up to him and ordered him to the ground.

A fight ensued and Mr. Johnson was cut on two fingers of his right hand with a knife, police said. A witness told police a similar story.

Police said the owner at the home said he did not order pizzas from the location.

The men took $40 and the two medium pizzas, police said. The incident remained under investigation yesterday.
