The Dover Police Department is investigating the armed robbery of a pizza delivery employee that occurred on Wednesday night.  At approximately 8:50PM, a 35-year-old male victim was delivering food to a home in the 100 Block of Holmes Street in Dover.  Upon arrival, he was invited inside the home by a black male suspect.  A second black male suspect was inside the residence with a red bandanna covering his face and silver handgun.  He demanded that the victim empty his pockets.  The suspects stole cash, a cell phone, an iPod, and the food from the driver and ordered him to leave the home before fleeing themselves.  Officers checked the residence and determined it was a vacant home.
