Food delivery man mugged in Rubonia

MANATEE - Two suspects got away with some chicken wings and soda after they mugged a delivery man for a local restaurant, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.

The 64-year-old delivery man was in the 1200 block of 72nd Street Court East, Rubonia, about 11:17 p.m. Sunday looking for an address that doesn't exist when he was approached by two men who sprayed him in the face with aerosol disinfectant spray. They attempted to grab the pizza bag the victim was carrying but were unable to do so, according to a news release.

During the struggle, the victim was hit on the left side of his head with an unknown object and received a minor cut. The victim then fell to the ground and dropped the pizza bag.

The suspects fled on foot, with two 2-liter bottles of soda and some chicken wings.

The aerosol can was recovered as evidence.

The suspects were described as each standing about 5 feet, 7 inches tall and weighing 150 pounds.
