Headlines seems to want to conceal the gender of the victim but it's more than happy describe the perpetrator of an axe attack as a man.

Or is this because they weren't comfortable describing the guy delivering pizzas as a delivery guy?

Conceal? Nope. A delivery person can be male, female, or whatever. It was, however, a man that wielded the axe.
You mad, bro?

The article itself switches the gender description, describing the perpetrator as a person and the delivery person as a man.

It seems the intent is something I was taught in school-to avoid reusing words (especially descriptor words) in a sentence.

The need to avoid reusing words... Yeah that would make sense.
