Suffolk police are seeking two unknown suspects who robbed a Chinese food delivery driver at gunpoint Tuesday night.

The robbery occurred about 8:43 p.m. in the 300 block of Jackson Street. The victim said an order was placed for delivery, but when he arrived at the address, he found it was a vacant residence, according to city spokeswoman Diana Klink.

When the driver started to walk away, however, the door suddenly opened and two men emerged, with one holding a gun, Klink said.
