ROCK HILL — Two men held a Rock Hill pizza delivery driver at gunpoint, rifled through his pockets and stole his money and food Tuesday night, police say.
Police were sent to Constitution Boulevard after a Domino’s Pizza employee, 21, reported that he was sent to a Pursley Street home in the city’s Boyd Hill neighborhood to deliver two pizzas, according to a Rock Hill police report. When he arrived, a man stood waiting for him on the porch.
The driver asked if he was at the correct address, the report states. The man confirmed that he was right as another man ambushed the pizza deliveryman from behind and held a handgun to his back.
The victim turned around and the gunman went through his pockets, stealing $20 cash, the report states. The suspect also took both pizzas, which were worth $15. Both men fled on foot towards Constitution Boulevard. Officers found the pizza delivery bag in front of Pursley Street. A K9 unit was used to track the suspects, but they could not find them.
Police are still searching for suspects, but don’t believe it is related to a similar incident last month in which a female Pizza Hut employee reported that two men wearing Halloween masks held her at gun and knife point before stealing her money and food she had been delivering.
In that case, police determined only one suspect was involved and showed the victim a line-up of possible suspects, but she was unable to positively identify anyone, said Executive Officer Mark Bollinger of the Rock Hill Police Department.
