Waterloo Regional Police are investigating after a pair of delivery drivers were robbed at gunpoint over the weekend.

Around 11:40 p.m. Sunday, police responded to Highpark Avenue and Courtland Avenue East after receiving a report that a delivery service driver and his passenger were robbed.

Police allege a suspect brandished a handgun and demanded personal belongings and the food.

No one was hurt.

The suspect is described as a black man, six-feet-tall, with a slim build.

He was last seen wearing dark coloured clothing and white shoes.

The other incident happened ten minutes later in the area of Siebert Avenue and Clark Avenue - a driver was robbed at gunpoint while making a delivery.

The victim was not injured.

Police are looking for a black man, described as tall with a slim build.

He was wearing a light coloured top and grey pants.

Investigators are trying to determine if the two robberies are connected.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 519-570-9777 ext. 4499 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. 

Police are also reminding delivery drivers to be on the lookout for any suspicious people loitering around the location of their delivery and to trust their instincts and turn around if a delivery address appears suspicious.
