A delivery driver is beaten and robbed

A woman delivering pizza to an address on Westminster Avenue was beat up and robbed of cash, food and her cell phone just after midnight on Sunday.

The 20-year-old woman told Buffalo police she was delivering $60 worth of food from Franco’s Pizza in Amherst to 161 Westminster Avenue. She said there were two men in the driveway to accept the food. The men asked if she could make change for $100.

The victim said they took the food and when she pulled the change out of her pocket a third man came up from behind, threw her to the ground and repeatedly struck her head on the ground.

Police said the three fled with $20 cash, the food and the victim’s cell phone.
