On November 5 at approximately 10:25 p.m., Salem Police Officers responded to the area of 36 Otter Avenue in reference to a robbery. Upon investigation, they determined that a pizza delivery driver had been robbed by a black male with a light complexion. The suspect fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash and was not located during the search.
On November 26 at approximately 10:30 p.m., Salem Police again responded to the same vicinity of Otter Avenue in reference to a robbery. Upon investigation, they determined that a pizza delivery driver, from a different company, also had been robbed by a black male matching the same description. The suspect again ran from the scene, and at this time he has not been identified.
Salem Police Detectives believe the same person committed both robberies and their investigation has resulted in two composite sketches of the suspect.
Anyone having information about the crime or the identity of the suspect is asked to call the Salem Police Department at (540)375-3078 or Roanoke Valley Crime Line (540)344-8500.
