PITTSBURGH — A Pittsburgh teen has been charged in a series of pizza delivery driver robberies over the summer.
Pittsburgh police arrested Kieran Ford, 17, Thursday at Brashear High School. He was wanted on a prior probation violation.
Investigators said Ford and another suspect lured the drivers to abandoned houses in the Elliot section of Pittsburgh by placing orders through a calling app.
Police said Ford and another man tried to rob a delivery driver at gunpoint along Bucyrus Street and allegedly got away with more than $100 worth of pizza.
The pair then allegedly robbed a Pizza Hut driver of $15 at the same address days later.
Police said Ford, who was wearing an Iron Man mask at the time and the other suspect were about to rob another delivery driver on Janewood Way when a witness intervened and told the driver to leave.
Police said Ford and the other suspect robbed the witness of $40 and ran off.
