Police responded to a report that a pizza-delivery person had been robbed Monday evening.

According to an Iowa City police press release, police officials responded to the 1700 block of DeForest Avenue in response to a report of an armed robbery.

A woman reported that she had delivered a pizza at the location when a male approached her, displayed what appeared to be a weapon in a bag, and demanded cash. The suspect allegedly told the woman to give him the money or he would shoot her. According to the release, she complied, and the male took an undisclosed amount of money and ran off.

The suspect was described as a Latino or white male, approximately 30 years old, with a heavyset build, wearing a gray hoodie, blue jeans or jean shorts, and a light mustache.

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