Man arrested after robbing South Side delivery driver


One of three suspects in an early morning on Saturday, Aug. 20, South Side robbery has been arrested.

According to police, shortly before 12:35 a.m., a deliveryman was walking out of a Mamma Mia Pizzeria in the 500 block of E. Carson Street with a delivery order when he was approached by three males who demanded money.

One suspect punched the victim in the stomach and another exposed a gun in his waistband. Two of suspects grabbed the food and they fled when an police officer approached.

The suspects were described as one black male wearing a red shirt and blue jeans, another black male wearing a black or blue shirt and blue jeans, and a third black male wearing white or a light gray shirt and blue jeans who had the gun. 

Officers located them walking near S. 9th and E. Carson streets. This time when they fled, an officer with a K-9 pursued and found two of the suspects in a parking lot. The suspects ignored orders from the officer and the K-9 was deployed.

The dog caught one of the suspects on Selby Way and bit him. He was taken into custody.

Additional police continued to search for the other two suspects without locating them.

While paramedics transported the suspect in custody to UPMC Mercy, officers learned the suspect had an active warrant out of Westmoreland County. Arrested was Duane Raymere Coleman, 20, of Arlington Heights.
