NEWPORT NEWS - Twice in four days, pizza drivers were robbed as they delivered to what turned out to be a vacant house in Newport News.

Police say it happened at 9:50 p.m. on January 2 and at 10:30 p.m. on January 6 in the 1100 block of Tyler Avenue.

The drivers worked for different restaurants, said spokesman Harold Eley.

In the first robbery, a woman with a bandanna over her face took money, the driver's ATM card and the pizza.

In the second one, a woman took the driver's cash while a second person stood by.

Police haven't determine whether the same woman is responsible for both robberies, but they're investigating.

Anyone with any information about these robberies should call Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
