WILLIAM ANDERSON'S grandparents had only one question last night as they sat in the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. "Why?" Why would a group of armed thugs attack their grandson, a delivery driver for a Wynnefield pizzeria who police say has never had a run-in with the law? The short answer, according to police, is greed: The three men called Pete's Pizza, on 54th Street near Arlington, at 1 a.m. yesterday looking to rob one of the restaurant's drivers. Anderson, 30, answered that call, arriving at an apartment complex on 63rd Street near Jefferson in Overbrook to find a group of at least three attackers waiting for him. "They definitely had this planned," said Lt. John Walker of the Southwest Detective Division.
