— Two men --one wearing a Halloween mask-- held a Pizza Hut delivery driver at knife and gunpoint before stealing her money and an order of pizza and wings Wednesday night, police said.

At about 9 p.m., police responded to the Pizza Hut on North Cherry Road after receiving a call about a delivery driver being robbed, according to a Rock Hill police report. They met with the driver, a 23-year-old woman, who told authorities that a call for a large pizza and wings came in about 30 minutes earlier.

She delivered the food to an Arborwood Park apartment on Patriot Parkway, but as she was about to knock on the door, two men approached her, the report states.

The first suspect, described as a Hispanic man about 5 feet 6 inches tall and 130 pounds, with bushy eyebrows and short, dark hair, wore a blue shirt and sported a blue bandana over part of his face. The second suspect was about 6 foot tall and wearing a black-hooded sweat shirt and blue jeans, donned a black and white Halloween mask over his face and gloves on his hands.

The first man put a knife to the woman’s side and told her to be quiet and stay calm before ordering her to drop the pizza to the ground, the report states. The masked man held a gun at the woman and rifled through her pockets, taking $50. The robbers also took the food, but left behind the heating bag the driver used to carry the pizza and wings.

The robbers fled the area and the woman drove back to work, police said. Police could not find any suspects, but did find the discarded pizza bag.

Pizza Hut gave officers the phone number and name of the person who called in the order, the report states. There is no indication that the robbers called in the order, police said. Police are still investigating.
