A local pizza delivery driver says he was robbed at gunpoint early Wednesday morning.
The 28-year-old DominoÃ¢ÂÂs driver says he was held up by two men about 1:30 a.m. Wednesday as he was searching for a specific apartment number in the 4500 block of Overland Drive.
Ã¢ÂÂWhat I kept thinking was, whatÃ¢ÂÂs my mom going to say if she finds out,Ã¢ÂÂ said Roy Wilson, whoÃ¢ÂÂs worked as a delivery driver for DominoÃ¢ÂÂs for one year. Ã¢ÂÂIÃ¢ÂÂm more freaked out today.Ã¢ÂÂ
The victim said both of the suspects had their faces covered with bandanas, and one of the men pointed a gun at his chestÃ
Wilson said the suspects then robbed him of his wallet, his personal money and the businessÃ¢ÂÂ cash.
The suspects also got away with a pizza inside of a $100 delivery bag.Ã
Ã¢ÂÂThey told me to put pizza on the ground,Ã¢ÂÂ Wilson said. Ã¢ÂÂOne of them then told me to empty my pockets and I did that, and then he asked me for my wallet.Ã¢ÂÂ
Police say the suspects are described as a white male, whoÃ¢ÂÂs 6-foot-6, weighing approximately 350 pounds and a black male, whoÃ¢ÂÂs 5-foot-2, 260 pounds.Ã
Police say both of the suspects left on foot. The victim said the men first ordered him to run to Free State High School and back so they could make their get-away.
Ã¢ÂÂOne of them tells me to run over to the high school, touch the wall and then walk back,Ã¢ÂÂ Wilson said, Ã¢ÂÂand when I started walking one of them yelled, Ã¢ÂÂ'you need to move faster than that.Ã¢ÂÂÃ¢ÂÂ
The victim was not injured during the robbery, and he was back at work Wednesday night delivering pizzas.
Ã¢ÂÂIÃ¢ÂÂve delivered a lot of pizzas in this past year,Ã¢ÂÂ Wilson said, Ã¢ÂÂand I believe this is extremely isolated. Ã¢ÂÂIÃ¢ÂÂm not too concerned.Ã¢ÂÂ
Wilson said DominoÃ¢ÂÂs held a special safety meeting for its drivers Wednesday evening. He was asked to explain what happened to his co-workers, hopefully to prevent similar attacks from happening again.
