Armed robbers held two UPS workers at gunpoint Monday evening in a Lakewood neighbor’s front lawn.

The robbery happened at 7:20 p.m. near Pasadena Avenue and West Shore Drive, neighbor Mark Cannon posted on Nextdoor.

The driver and his assistant had just made a delivery at Cannon’s house when two men wearing black ski masks approached them. The robbers forced the employees onto their stomachs in the front yard and pointed guns at their heads, Cannon said.

The robbers took their wallets and cell phones. They also took the keys to the UPS truck, but they did not steal the truck or any packages.

Cannon called the police, who said the robbers had probably been following the truck, waiting for a quiet place to commit the robbery.

No injuries were reported.
