Cops: UPS driver kidnapped, robbed

A UPS driver who was making his rounds in Chester this morning was held up at gunpoint and forced to drive to another location, where he was robbed of all his packages, police said.

Around 11:46 a.m., the driver called police and said he was delivering a package at 7th and Engle streets, near Veterans Memorial Park, when two men jumped in his big, brown truck, held him at gunpoint and forced him to drive to Bunting Street near Front, where two other men were lying in wait, police said.

There, the four men unloaded the packages from his UPS truck and put them into an SUV, police said. The UPS worker did not get a good description of the vehicle and the car's plates were not visible, police said.

The robbers drove off and left the driver at the scene, unharmed.

Perhaps, the assailants were trying to get to one of these special shipments intended for Upper Darby, before someone turned it over to police.

Anyone with information is asked to call Chester Police at 610.447.8429.
