Ithaca Police are looking for a man who they say robbed a delivery driver Saturday night.
Just before 11 p.m., police say a delivery driver was dropping off a food order in the 200 block of Cleveland Avenue. Police say the driver called the customer when he arrived, and shortly after that, the suspect knocked on the driver’s window.
When the driver got out, the suspect took the food and ran. During that time, police say the suspect dropped a knife, which was not displayed or used during the crime.
The suspect is described as a black male, 5’5″, 150 lbs., wearing a red, hooded sweatshirt and a black scarf over his face.
Police issued a warning to delivery drivers reminding them to be alert and aware of their surroundings, and to call police immediately if encountering any suspicious activity.
