As victim ran screaming he was calling police, the suspect stole pizza and chicken and then ran into a building.
A Domino's pizza delivery man was lured to a West Roxbury location, hit in the with a bottle by a suspect, who then stole pizza and chicken from the victim.
On June 24 around 1 a.m., Boston Police were called to 51 Ridgecrest Drive for an injured robbery victim. Boston EMS was already on the scene , and indicated to police the victim needed stitches, as he had visible head lacerations, and was transported to Faulkner Hospital for further evaluation and treatment.
Prior to leaving, the victim told police he was given a delivery address of 5120 Washington St., #3, which he realized was the management office for Ridgecrest Village, and did not have an apartment #3. The victim called the cellphone for the alleged customer and spoke to a female, who said to pull around to a back lot. The victim said he waited back there for about four minutes, and then drove around to see if anyone was standing around looking like they were waiting for pizza. The victim called the cell back and the woman said, "Someone will meet you there."
After seeing the suspect, who was wearing a dark shirt with white stripes, the driver pulled over and asked if the suspect were waiting for pizza and the man said he was. After getting out of the car and placing the food on the roof, the suspect asked the victim if he had change for a $100, which the delivery driver said he did not.
The suspect then presented a glass bottle in his hand and struck the victim on the left side of his head and face. The victim told police he ran away quickly from the suspect on Ridgecrest Drive towards Ridgecrest Terrace and yelled to the suspect that he was calling the police.
The victim told police the suspect removed pizza and chicken from the canvass bag and then ran in the opposite direction between buildings on Washington Street. The victim said he did not see the suspect go into his vehicle, and was unsure what building he ran into. The victim said there was money in his vehicle still in the console.
Crime Scene Recovery Unit personnel took the canvass bag, broken glass and secured it as evidence.
