A delivery man was robbed at gunpoint while delivering pizza early Saturday to a Columbus home.
The 22-year-old Domino’s Pizza employee told Columbus police that he was taking pizza to a Gould Street home around midnight when he saw a man come out from behind a chain link fence. The man pointed a silver handgun at the victim and told him to “give it up,” police records state.
The delivery man handed over his cell phone, two pizzas and $20 in cash. The suspect then ran toward the backyard of the home.
The victim was not injured. About a half an hour later, an off duty Muscogee County Sheriff’s Office deputy found the phone on 13th Street between Cedar Avenue and Forrest Avenue. It was returned to the Domino’s employee, police said.
