An armed robber demanded money, but ended up getting knocked down, after being hit with a delivery order of Chinese food. He got no cash, but when he got up, he did take off with that which had hit him.

The crime took place on Grandwood Court Sunday night. The 49-year old victim, a driver for an east side restaurant, attempted to make a delivery, but could not find the person who had ordered the food. As he returned to his van, the robber approached. Shortly after that, the employee swung the delivery, losing control of the food, which the robber grabbed as he fled.
