ARKANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Police say two people arrested for attacking and robbing a pizza delivery driver in Arkansas City are also responsible for other recent crimes.
Just after 8:30 p.m. Sunday, employees of the Pizza Hut at 422 N. Summit Street called police to report that one of their drivers had been robbed.
The robbery happened when the employee tried to deliver pizza to an address in the 300 block of North 2nd Street. While standing on the porch of a vacant house, he was greeted by a woman, then attacked from behind by a man. He suffered a head injury and was taken to an area hospital. He has since been treated and released.
On Monday, the police investigation led to a man and woman who had been staying at a relative's house on the same block. They were brought in for questioning as officers got a search warrant to look for evidence at the home.
Police say soon after that one of the suspects confessed. While searching the home, officers found evidence connecting the suspects to this crime as well as stolen property from several residential burglaries that occurred recently in Ark City and Parsons.
The pair was also found to be in possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
Marcese Treyvon Dickson and Jordan Taylor Collison were arrested and booked into the Cowley County Jail on multiple charges.
