COLORADO SPRINGS – Two suspects are at large after robbing a food delivery driver at gunpoint Monday night.

Around 8:45 p.m. a delivery driver was parked outside an apartment in the 4900 block of El Camino and Flintridge Drive waiting for the customer to pick up their food.

The driver tried calling the customer to let them know they were waiting outside when two men approached the driver, one was armed with a black and silver handgun.

The suspects were described as late teenage African American males dressed in dark clothes.

One of the men got in the delivery driver’s car and robbed him of cash, a cell phone, and other things along with the food.

During the robbery, one of the suspects hit the driver in the face and he sustained minor injuries.

Both of the suspects fled the scene on foot. The delivery driver went back to his work where he called the police.

When K9 and patrol officers arrived on the scene, they were not able to find the suspects.
