NEW CASTLE, Pa. (WKBN) – Police in New Castle say two men posing as pizza delivery drivers attacked a man inside his own home.

It happened on West Friendship Street, about 5:30 P.M. Monday.

A man told police he heard a knock at his door, and when he answered it, he found two men standing outside with a pizza box. Before he could say he didn’t order a pizza, they pushed him inside and attacked him.

The men then searched the house, stealing about $300 in cash before leaving in a white pickup truck. The man told police his attackers left when one of his friends came over.

One man was described as about 6′ tall and 250 pounds. The other one was 5’6″ and 170 pounds. Both men were wearing masks.

A glove was found at the house, and it was taken as evidence for DNA testing.

So far, no one has been arrested.
