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.
