Cheap pizza in Kambah

By johnboy - 17 February 2012 9

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to the aggravated robbery of a pizza delivery driver in Kambah last night (Thursday, February 16).

About 10:20pm, a pizza delivery driver attended an address in Karney Street, Kambah, to deliver an order. At the address, the delivery driver was approached from behind by a man and woman, who were both carrying weapons.

The man threatened the delivery driver with a baseball bat, demanding his money, pizzas and soft drink. The victim complied with the demands and handed the items to the offender.

The offenders fled the area on foot towards parkland in Karney Street.

The victim was not harmed during the incident.

The male offender is described as being of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander in appearance and aged in his late twenties. He is approximately 175cm (5’9”) tall with brown eyes, bushy eyebrows, and a skinny build. He was wearing a black baseball cap, a white or grey hooded jumper with vertical stripes, black tracksuit pants and white skater shoes. He had a white bandana covering his face.

The female offender is described as Caucasian in appearance and aged in her late twenties. She is approximately 163cm (5’4”) tall with a stocky build. She has black hair that was tied back in a ponytail. She was wearing a navy blue hooded jumper, blue tracksuit pants and had a black bandana covering her face.

Anyone who saw people acting suspiciously in Karney Street, Kambah last night or may be able to assist with the investigation, is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information may be provided anonymously.

‘Eat here or run away?’ Sounds like the stocky little white woman hasn’t been sharing the pizza and soft drink evenly with her black mate. Still, the contrasting bandanas and hoodies sounds like a real fashion statement.

Seriously, who hangs around a house with a baseball bat on the off chance they are ordering pizza. The offender is clearly known to the person who made the order, the driver, or someone else at the pizza shop. It’s not rocket science.

I’m thinking maybe they ordered it? called it off a payphone or mobile (potentially stolen/throwaway or switched off after robbery), maybe even using the iphone ap or whatever, to a random house that looked like a good spot for a robbery, quiet, lots of trees, not alot of view from the other houses, etc

Or from a conspiracy theorists point of view, Inside job, its a pizza stealing racket with people on the inside of certain dominoes that send there mates messages whenever a decent sized order is sent to somewhere near they’re joint so they can run out and rob the poor delivery guy without much time spent on the street thus less chance of being placed in the area with an obvious weapon such as a baseball bat.

On a more serious note, I would definitely be keen to find out how the police pursue these incidents, as what seems random and with numerous offenders across the city, how do they stop it before it becomes seen as the next “easy payout” for junkies and thugs?

Because i have to wonder how long till a pizza boy out thugs one of these derro’s with a weapon of his own and gets jail time. I remember a mate of mine always took precautions when he was a delivery driver in Dickson, he kept a fireaxe under his seat, luckily it never had to be used, but he cant be the only one that keeps something under there seat

I did pizza delivery 4 nights a week for about a year. Never had any kind of incident at all, and I didn’t keep a weapon handy. Then again I was in the inner south.

I wasn’t saying all delivery drivers carry a weapon, just that it only takes 1

I think its time that pizza boys be equipped with Tasers.

There’s nothing worse than having to wait for your pizza to get delivered.

The biggest problem with this is that this sort of, increasingly popular attack, will drive up the price of pizzas.

Now I’m not a consumer of take-away pizza so I’m not too bothered, but plenty are and it will be them who suffer.

On the bright side, if you love a fight, just go and get a job as a pizza delivery driver and your wish will soon come to fruition. You might even help the fuzz clean up a few unsolved cases.

I hope the poor employees just trying to pay their way through uni/high school/girlfiends demands are not too shaken. Keep up the good work people, it’ll pay off for you in the long run.
