Two local delivery drivers were robbed while making a delivery Tuesday.

According to an Iowa City press release, Iowa City Police responded to the area of 700 Brookside Dr. for an unknown problem. When police officials arrived, two employees of China Wok, 2302 Muscatine Ave., reportedly told them that they were robbed while making a delivery to 828 Willow St.

The two employees reportedly pulled up to the residence but did not see anyone outside. According to the report, one of the employees who took the food to the door was approached by a man who pointed a gun at him. The man took the food and an undisclosed amount of money from the employee before leaving on foot, the report said.

The man was described as a white male, between 20-30 years old, with a long face and medium build. The man was reportedly wearing a black coat and a black stocking cap.

Iowa City CrimeStoppers is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest of the suspect.
