LOWER POTTS­GROVE >> Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing af­ter an armed rob­bery was re­ported near Wal­nut Ridge Es­tates.

Po­lice said in a post Thurs­day that at ap­prox­i­mately 7:30 p.m. on Hal­loween, Lower Potts­grove Po­lice re­sponded to a re­port of an armed rob­bery in the 3800 block of Wal­nut Ridge Es­tates.

Ini­tial in­ves­ti­ga­tion found that a fe­male food de­liv­ery driver had been dis­patched to make a food de­liv­ery to a home on the block. Upon ar­rival, the driver met a per­son de­scribed as a black male, about 5 feet, 6 inches to 5 feet, 8 inches tall, wear­ing black Adi­das sweat­pants with a hooded sweat­shirt. The man is be­lieved to be in his mid 30s with scruffy fa­cial hair and was armed with a hand­gun.

The sus­pect held the vic­tim at gun­point and de­manded all the cash she was car­ry­ing and then walked away on foot with the food or­der to­ward the rear of the 3800 block of

Wal­nut Ridge Es­tates, po­lice said. The vic­tim fled the area and called po­lice.

A search of the area was un­suc­cess­ful in lo­cat­ing the sus­pect.

Po­lice said the in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing and may be re­lated to an­other armed rob­bery that took place at ap­prox­i­mately 11:15 p.m. in Rolling Hills

de­vel­op­ment of an­other food de­liv­ery driver.

Po­lice are re­quest­ing any­one with in­for­ma­tion to con­tact them at 610326-1508.

Po­lice are also cau­tion­ing mer­chants mak­ing de­liv­er­ies in this area to be aware of the re­cent rob­beries and take mea­sures to avoid be­com­ing a vic­tim. Po­lice are warn­ing driv­ers to be par­tic­u­larly care­ful if the caller is not a re­peat cus­tomer.
