A Chinese food delivery driver told Cape Coral police that she was robbed at gunpoint during the delivery of a food order Wednesday evening.
The victim told officers that she was delivering an order from Haus Garden Chinese to a home in the 100 block of Southeast Seventh Place when a man holding a rifle and an unarmed man robbed her of her cell phone and cash, valued at $228.
The robbery reportedly occurred at about 8:50 p.m.
The victim told officers that the men, who wore black clothing and black bandannas over their faces, took $18 cash, $10 in loose change and her Samsung cell phone.
The armed man stated, “I know you have the money, give me the (expletive) money,” the victim reported.
The two men then fled the area on foot, heading west on Southeast First Street, reports state.
Police dusted for latent fingerprints and lifted one print from the victim’s vehicle, which was submitted to Cape Coral Police Department forensics.
Officers canvassed the area but did not find or arrest any suspects as a result of their search.
The incident remains under investigation.
