According to the Springfield Police Department, the man was making a delivery to 65 Grand Street after receiving a food order for that location.  But that address is a vacant house.

When the pizza deliverer arrived he was held up by two men.

“One was 5’8, skinny, dressed in all black.   The other is 6’2, he’s got a silver pull over jacket and had a large black handgun,” explains Springfield Police Captain, Cheryl Clapprood.

After robbing the driver of $42 worth of food, the two suspects fled on food toward Revere Street.

Clapprood says the man who works for Pizza Works on Belmont Avenue called police after he got back to work at about 7:45 p.m.  He was not injured in the incident.
