Delivery Driver Mugged By Mutt

Aug 17, 2007
David was a low ranking military man. He was married with 3 small children. His wife did not work outside of the home. David was the sole provider for his household. They were having a tough time making ends meet. David decided to take an extra job as a pizza deliveryman. He knew the area well and figured it would be a way to help take care of his familys needs. He did not want to do it forever, just long enough to get through the rough times.

He knew he could make a few hundred dollars extra a month doing that. One hot summer night, David got a call to deliver 10 pizzas to a party about 15 miles away. He figured parties are always big tippers and he could sure use the money. The order was finally finished and David loaded his vehicle to make the delivery.

He drove to the house and parked in the driveway. He thought it was pretty strange because it was very quiet. He thought, what kind of party is this. He unloaded the pizza and started to approach the house. At that moment he heard the words get him boy. A huge dog attacked and knocked him down. The pizzas went everywhere.

The dog chewed at David for a few minutes. He did everything he could do to fight the dog. Then he heard someone say come here, and the dog released him and ran off into the darkness. David got up, and drove himself to the hospital. He told the police what happened. They went out to the address to investigate.

They found that the couple who lived in the house had been out of town for the past two weeks. The neighbors said that to their knowledge no one in that area owned a viscous dog. The case is still under investigation. David kept delivering pizzas, but always remembered that night. He approaches each delivery with a newfound sense of caution.

Delivery drivers face the unknown every time they make a delivery. They face robbery, assault and other violence. Many delivery divers have been seriously injured or killed while making deliveries. Delivery drivers should always be aware of their surroundings and make a hasty retreat when things do not seem right.

The country depends on delivery drivers for everything. They should always have a Self Defense strategy in mind. The many hazards, make it among the most dangerous professions. Aside from the perils of traffic, delivery drivers face animal attacks, assaults, robberies, road rage and possible kidnapping. Although short range delivery drivers, have limited exposure to the hazards of their profession they should still consider that they could be a victim.

Every address they visit can be a potentially life altering event. Most deliveries are made with no problems, but there are times when situations occur. Delivery drivers are called to all different types of neighborhoods to make deliveries. They should know the areas in which they deliver, but becoming complacent leads to trouble. Delivery drivers should always be prepared to defend themselves if necessary.
