Fake Pizza Delivery Guy Pistol Whips Woman in Philadelphia Home: Police

A man posing as a pizza deliveryman forced his way into a woman’s Philadelphia home and pistol-whipped the victim.

The woman told Philadelphia Police that she answered her door along Wellington Street in the Mayfair neighborhood around 10:30 p.m. Monday to find a man posing a pizza guy, said investigators.

The "deliveryman" asked if the woman ordered a pizza and she said no, said police.

The man at the door then burst into the woman’s home and pistol-whipped her multiple times, said police.

The woman fought off her attacker and he fled without taking anything, said police. She refused medical treatment.

No word yet on why the fake deliveryman targeted the home.
