TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) – A Lafayette man faces robbery, theft and battery charges after prosecutors said he punched and robbed a sandwich delivery driver.

The incident occurred on 21st Street in Lafayette Saturday, May 24. Prosecutors said when the driver arrived, Zachary Collins asked him to break a $100 bill. He then took the driver’s wallet and threw punches at his head during a struggle.

Prosecutors said Collins ran off with the wallet. Even though Collins changed clothes before police arrested him, the victim and a witness identified him as the person of interest.

Prosecutors said officers located the clothes and money inside an apartment where Collins was found. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
