Statesboro police are seeking information regarding the armed robbery of a food delivery driver Wednesday morning.

Around 2:33 a.m., a Jimmy Johns deliveryman was delivering an order to Cambridge at Southern when "he was approached by an unknown black male on foot," Statesboro Public Safety Director Wendell Turner said. "The subject was wearing a black hoodie, black pants, and black Nike shoes."

The offender showed a weapon, which police did not describe, and demanded money from the victim, who handed over an undisclosed amount of cash, Turner said.

The offender then ran off. The victim was not injured during the incident, Turner said.

Officers from the Statesboro and Georgia Southern University police departments searched the area of Cambridge at Southern and "interviewed potential witnesses, but were unable to locate the offender," Turner said. "A public safety alert was sent out to the community through Nixle, giving a brief description of the offender and the robbery."

This case is currently under investigation by the Statesboro Police Department Investigations Bureau.

Anyone with information concerning this case is asked to contact Statesboro police Detective Keith Holloway at (912) 764-9911.
