The driver, 29, was called to deliver a pizza at 111 Benton St. around 12:30 a.m. Sunday. As the driver walked toward the house, two male suspects appeared from the side, one holding a black handgun, said Jessie Haden, the public information officer for the Columbia Police Department.
The driver was instructed to return to his car and while doing so, a third male suspect appeared. One suspect pointed the handgun at the driver and demanded his money. The driver explained he didn't have much and handed it over, including some of his own personal cash. The suspects then fled on foot, Haden said.
Police talked to the residents of the house as well as neighbors and no one had ordered a pizza, Haden said. Police don't suspect the residents or neighbors were involved.
The driver was not injured and no vehicles were seen around or near the suspects, Haden said. The incident is under investigation, but there are no leads.
