A pizza delivery driver was robbed at knifepoint in Moorhead Wednesday evening.

The incident was reported at 5:44 p.m., when the delivery driver was waiting for a customer on the 1900 block of 18th Avenue South.

A suspect approached the driver with a knife and demanded his wallet, before fleeing around the west side of an apartment building to the south. Efforts to find him by local police officers and deputies were unsuccessful.

He is described as a 5'6" tall Hispanic male between 20-30 years old, weighing 135 pounds with dark, short hair, and a "scruffy beard."

He was last seen wearing reddish trunks or shorts.

Anyone with information should contact Red River Regional Dispatch Center at 701-451-7660.
