A delivery driver was simply trying to do his job on Sunday when a 43-year-old man allegedly decided to carjack the van that the Amazon employee was working out of.
The Edgewater Police Department revealed that at roughly 1:15 p.m. on Sunday, a man believed to be a resident in Denver threatened an Amazon delivery driver who was working along the 1800 block of Depew Street.
