Allentown Police are investigating after a delivery driver was robbed at gunpoint Saturday night.

Police said it happened in the area of Front and Tilghman streets around 10:30pm Saturday.

The delivery driver, who worked for China House, was looking for an address in the area when he was approached by two males who chased him to his vehicle, police said.  The men both had guns, but one was a squirt gun, according to police.  The actor with the squirt gun fired an unknown substance into the delivery driver's eye, police said.

Officials said the men then demanded the driver's keys and cell phone, and took off on foot under the Tilghman Street bridge. 

The delivery driver was not injured in the incident, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Allentown Police.
