WYOMING, Mich. — Shortly after notifying the public about two robberies involving pizza delivery drivers, police in Wyoming are reporting a third robbery is now being investigated.

Around 10:50 p.m. Wednesday night, officers say a driver was delivering a pizza in the 2100 block of Michael Ave when they were hit in the face with an unknown object. The driver was robbed but got away with minor injuries.

The other two incidents happened within the past two weeks. In both cases, a suspect called pizza places and requested delivery, but the people at the addresses told the delivery drivers they had not ordered pizza. The drivers were then robbed on their way back to their vehicles.

Police say the suspect from this third robbery is very similar to the descriptions given from the others. The suspect from the Prairie Parkway incident on September 22  is as a black male between 17 and 20 years old, 5 feet 9 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall with a thin build, wearing long red shorts, a white tank top and white gloves “similar to gloves that would be worn while playing soccer.”

There were two suspects from the second robbery, which happened September 26 near the area of Burton and Godfrey. The first suspect was described as a black male between 18 and 25 years old, roughly 150 lbs wearing a dark-colored sweatshirt and blue jeans.  He was also believed to be wearing gloves during the robbery. Police also say a second man approached the driver, and that he was a white male between 18 and 25 years old, 5 feet 8 inches tall and 160 pounds, wearing a light-colored t-shirt and blue jeans at the time of the robbery.

Anyone with information on these incidents is asked to call Wyoming Police at 616-530-7300 or Silent Observer at 616-774-2345.
