Corsicana Police are looking for suspects in a pair of armed robberies the past week.
Saturday night, a pizza delivery driver was the victim of an armed robber at the Northwest Apartments on North 13th Street.
Corsicana Police Chief Randy Bratton said the victim was apparently lured to the address with a phony pizza order. The address given to the restaurant turned out to be a that of a vacant apartment.
Bratton said when the driver arrived at the address she was met by a suspect with a gun who demanded money. The suspect is described by police as an African American male, 15 to 25 years of age, medium height and build, and weight of 125 to 150 pounds. He took cash and the pizza from the driver and fled the area on foot.
The driver for the pizza restaurant was not injured in the incident.
Det. Greg Cloud is the investigator in the incident and may be reached by telephone at 903-654-4914.
Wednesday night, another armed heist took place at 10:25 p.m. on South Business 45 at the Big Deli convenience store.
Bratton said a man entered the store, displayed a handgun and demanded money from the clerk. He left the store on foot with an undetermined amount of currency, Bratton said.
Bratton described the suspect as an African American male, 6 feet tall, about 190 pounds, wearing a hoodie over his head.
Anyone with information on Wednesday’s robbery is asked to contact Det. Michael Dockery at 903-654-4916.
Bratton said there is no indication the two robberies are related.
