A Jimmy John’s delivery driver was robbed at gunpoint in the Oread Neighborhood early Saturday morning.
Around 3:20 a.m., the driver stopped to deliver a sandwich order to a home in the 900 block of Ohio.
The person who ordered the food was waiting for the driver on the porch of the house.
After a successful transaction, the driver turned to leave and was accosted by the customer, who was armed with an unknown kind of firearm, according to Lawrence Police Sgt. Ted Bordman.
The driver was not injured during the incident but did have an undetermined amount of money taken along with personal belongings.
The suspect was described as a 5-foot-9 man with an athletic build, who was wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt with the hood up and baggy pants. The driver reported it had been too dark to determine the race of the suspect.
The suspect was last seen running south from the residence and has not been apprehended, according to Bordman.
Anyone with information should call the Lawrence Crime Stoppers hot line at 785-843-TIPS (8477).
