Pizza deliveryman robbed at gunpoint

A man delivering a pizza was robbed at gunpoint in front of a residence on Palmer Street just before midnight Saturday.

Arthur Green, 19, a driver for Marcos Pizza, at 3423 Lagrange St., told police he delivered a pizza to 159 Palmer at 11:40 p.m. when he noticed that the home was vacant. Mr. Green said he was approached by a man who said he ordered the pizza and handed him the money to pay for it.

He said while the exchange was taking place, another man jumped from behind nearby bushes, produced a gray handgun and demanded the money and the pizza from him. The incident remained under investigation yesterday.
