NORTH CANTON, Ohio– Two pizza delivery drivers were robbed within hours of each other in North Canton Thursday night.

The first happened just after 8 p.m. on School Avenue Northeast. North Canton police said the Donatos driver handed over his phone, wallet and cash to a man with a gun.

The suspect ordered the driver to get back in his car. When the victim got back to the pizza shop, he called 911.

About two hours later, a Papa John’s driver was held up on Church Street Southwest. This time two men approached the victim after he delivered a pizza to a resident.

The armed men got away with an undetermined amount of cash and fled on foot. Officers searched the area with a K-9 unit, but didn’t find them. Police said they believe the suspects had a car in the area to help with their escape.

Neither driver was injured.

Anyone with information should call the North Canton Police Department at 330-499-5911.
