The driver of a delivery van was reportedly robbed at gunpoint Friday evening in western Dawson County.

Dawson County Sheriff's Maj. Ray Goodie said the man was traveling on Hwy. 136 near Goshen Church Road between 7 and 8 p.m. when the driver of a white Astro van pulled up behind him flashing his lights "and ultimately pulled in front of him and stopped."

The suspect, who was described as a man wearing a white jogging suit with pantyhose over his face and carrying a black handgun, ordered the delivery driver to get out of the vehicle, walk to the wood line and not turn around.

"A few minutes later, the suspect vehicle drove away," Goodie said.

Two flat screen televisions were reportedly taken from inside the delivery truck.

"The victim believes that there may have been three possible suspects in the vehicle, but we only have the description for one," he said.

The driver was not injured in the robbery.

Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff's office at (706) 344-3535.
