PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) – Providence police say a pizza delivery driver was stabbed and robbed in the Cathedral Square apartment complex shortly after midnight Tuesday.

The victim, a teenage driver for Vasilios Pizza, told police the three suspects mugged him as he was walking down the stairs of the apartment complex, according to an incident report. He said the attackers made off with $21.

“It’s very sad that this is happening.” Vasilios co-owner Charbel Kosseifi.

“I don’t know what they get out of it,” he continued. “They sometimes they take lives out of a couple of bucks.”

Kosseifi said it was not the first time one of his employees was targeted.

“Yes, a couple of my drivers have got robbed before,” he said. “But they were never stabbed or anything like that. Hopefully it’s the last.”

The victim said all three of the suspects were Hispanic.

No arrests have been made. The victim was treated at Rhode Island Hospital.

Police are now looking into whether there’s any surveillance video of the attack as they search for the suspects.

“If anybody thinks or sees something, maybe they can help us out,” said Kosseifi. “Prevent anything from happening again.”
