AKRON -- A would-be robber got away with nothing when the victim he targeted Saturday night, a pizza delivery driver, outsmarted him by thinking fast on his feet.
According to Akron Police, the victim had just delivered food in the 900 block of Clement Street and was walking back to his vehicle when the suspect, armed with a handgun, approached and demanded money.
The driver reportedly ran back toward the house screaming "Get out of here!"
The suspect then approached the delivery driver's car when the driver hit his alarm, activating the horn and lights. The suspect then ran westbound toward Ray Street without taking anything.
The suspect has not been identified.
Anybody with information is asked to contact the Akron Police Department.
