Comments () A Text Size

A delivery driver was robbed at gunpoint by two men Tuesday in the 2600 block of West Oak Street, according to a Denton police report.

The woman told police she was making a delivery at an unfamiliar apartment complex. When she was unable to locate the unit she was to deliver to, she asked two men walking in the parking lot of the complex for directions. Both men replied that they could not help.

According to the report, the woman found the unit, made the delivery and returned to her car. She told police that as she was sitting in the car, she noticed movement and looked up to see one of the men she asked directions of pointing a pistol at her. The man wore something over his nose to conceal the lower portion of his face, she told police.

A second man, whom she recognized from earlier, entered the passenger side of the vehicle and demanded her money, the report states.

The woman handed the money over, an estimated $60 to $100, and the two men left the area, according to the report.
