A man using a fake firearm robbed a food deliveryman Sunday night in Easton‘s West Ward, city police said.

The 29-year-old delivery man was “in the area of” the 1100 block of Spring Garden Street when a light-skinned “black or Hispanic man,” possibly in his 20s, approached just after 9:45 p.m., police said.

The robber was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and headed east on Spring Garden, police said. It wasn’t immediately clear how police knew the gun was fake.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 610-250-6667 or the anonymous tipline at 610-250-6635.
