Cops: Delivery man IDs hungry robbery suspect
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – Police in western Massachusetts say a man has been arrested in the robbery of a food delivery driver after he returned to the driver's restaurant for seconds.
Sgt. John Delaney says police arrested 23-year-old Edward Blatch on Monday at Fu Wong Restaurant in Springfield after the delivery driver identified him. Delaney said the driver and cooks surrounded Blatch and held him until officers arrived.
Blatch is scheduled to be arraigned on an armed robbery charge Tuesday in Springfield District Court. It was unclear if he had an attorney.
Police say two men robbed the 23-year-old restaurant driver at gunpoint when he made a delivery in September, taking the food, $200, a cell phone and a high school class ring.
