Anchorage police have named a male suspect arrested and charged after he allegedly threatened a pizza delivery driver with a gun Thursday morning.
APD spokesperson Jennifer Castro says Keng Lor, 23, faces two counts of third-degree assault and one count of fourth-degree misconduct involving weapons.
According to a statement from Castro earlier Thursday, police were informed of the incident, on the 3300 block of Boniface Parkway, shortly after 6:15 a.m.
“Police responded to the residence and found in their initial investigation that while the delivery driver was delivering pizza to the residence, a male occupant inside the home pointed a gun at the driver and threatened him,” Castro wrote. “The delivery driver was able to leave the residence without injury.”
Castro won't identify the pizza driver's company, citing the possible implication that its drivers are vulnerable to threats. She says that while the driver had made deliveries to the same address before, Thursday's dropoff was different.
"During the delivery, there were a number of occupants who were expressing their unsatisfaction with the service and the time it was taking," Castro said.
Lor allegedly pulled a gun on the driver, prompting him to leave as quickly as possible.
"He just gave them the pizza and left," Castro said.
Castro says Lor will likely be arraigned in the case Friday.
