Delivery driver robbed at gun point

SEATTLE -- A delivery driver was robbed at gunpoint early last Saturday in Capitol Hill, according to the Seattle Police Department.

Around 2:30 a.m., the driver was leaving a building in the 300 block of Belmont Avenue East where he had just made a delivery when he noticed a woman sitting in the driver's seat of his delivery vehicle, which he had left unlocked.

According to the police report for the incident, the driver ran toward the vehicle while yelling at the woman, who got out and tried to run away.

The driver caught up with the woman and grabbed her when two men came out of nowhere and started charging at him, according to the report.

The driver told officers one of the men was pointing a gun at him while the second was swinging around a bicycle chain. The men reportedly told the driver they would kill him if he didn't let the woman go.

According to the report, the driver let the woman go and tried to call 911, but the men grabbed his cellphone and ran off.

The driver returned to his work and called 911. He later discovered he was missing a number of items out of his delivery vehicle.
