A delivery man from Spizzico Pizzeria was held up for $150 by four men who displayed a black semiautomatic pistol around 8 p.m. Sunday night in the lobby of the building in the 7300 block of Randolph following a delivery. Responding officers observed three men, allegedly out of breath and sweating, behind Kevil’s restaurant on Circle Ave. The three scattered, but one was captured by an officer, and another was nabbed by an assisting River Forest cop.
