Driver robbed, carjacked delivering fake food order in Haverford, police say

Police say a suspect concocted a plan to rob a food delivery driver by placing a bogus order over the weekend in Delaware County.

The driver was delivering food Sunday night when police say he was approached by a man with a long-barreled gun with a scope on the 200 block of Friendship Road in Drexel Hill.

He was forced to the ground at gunpoint as the suspect stole his shoes, cell phone, wallet, food and vehicle - a silver 2010 Toyota RAV4.

A neighbor told FOX 29's Shawnette Wilson that the victim knocked on another neighbor's door for held immediately after the armed robbery.


Police say the food order was "fictitious," and only intended to rob the victim.

The victim's car was recovered by police Monday morning a street over on Treaty Road.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Haverford Township Police Department.
