Delivery workers robbed at gunpoint

Two men, one armed with a gun, robbed two pizza delivery workers early Tuesday while they were delivering food in Glen Burnie, according to Anne Arundel County police.

The holdup happened shortly after midnight in the 100 block of Alview Terrace, police said.

Two men, each wearing a black mask, approached the workers, and one pointed a gun at the head of one of them, police said. The gun-wielding suspect robbed the worker of the food he was carrying, while the other stole the worker's wallet and took the car keys from a second worker waiting in a car, police said. The robbers then ran off.

Anne Arundel County patrol and canine units searched the neighborhood but did not find them.

Police did not release the names of the victims, their company or how much money was stolen.
