Minnesota Man Orders Food, Answers Door With Gun In Hand
This is one story that will send a chill down your spine and it all went down in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota over the weekend.
It has been an interesting month for crime stories like this as of late. Recently, a seventy-year-old woman made headlines after she was caught hanging off the I-94 bridge while drinking tequila. It is a story that could have ended way worse than it did.
Just a few days ago, a car was stolen in Minnesota with a five-month-old puppy inside. The car was parked outside a restaurant when it was stolen and taken with the puppy in tow. That makes the crime even worse.
Like I said, it has been a strange month with stories like these. Now, we have another story to add to that category, although this one could have turned dangerous very quickly.
Bring Me The News first reported on this story. The incident happened in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, which is a few hour drive from the Twin Ports. A restaurant delivery driver went to bring a customer their order when they were quickly put in a life-or-death situation.
The Brooklyn Park Police Department shared details about the incident, writing that it happened Sunday (November 14th) around 10 p.m. in the evening. According to their report, the victim was delivering a food order to a local address. When they arrived at the address, they were "confronted by an adult male with a handgun" who took the food and cash from the delivery driver.
Thankfully, the delivery driver was able to get away from the situation uninjured and at this time, there is no word on whether the suspect was caught or not. They have not offered an official update on the incident at the time of writing.
This is unbelievably scary and like I said, it could have had a very tragic ending. Hopefully whoever committed this crime is found so it doesn't happen to anyone else. The name of the restaurant was not mentioned.
Many of us have picked up the habit of ordering takeout and ordering food via delivery service quite often during the pandemic and have kept the habit, even as things have opened up and have been for some time now. With the growing popularity of food delivery services, this might make some more cautious of using services like this.
Even scams seem to becoming more common these days. Recently, the Better Business Bureau warned consumers of those holiday side hustles. They are predicting that scammers will find ways to get personal information and banking information from people posing as companies hiring for the holidays. Yikes.
