Domino's delivery driver robbed

COLUMBIA — Two pizzas, three orders of cinnamon sticks and a two-liter bottle of Sprite were stolen from a Domino's Pizza delivery driver during a strong-arm robbery early Tuesday morning, police said.

Around 12:30 a.m., three suspects — 17-year-old LeJuane Johnson and two minors — approached the vehicle on the street at 613 Pear Tree Circle and punched the driver in the face and stomach before throwing the driver to the ground, the Columbia Police Department said in a news release. The delivery person, who was not identified in the release, was able to get back into the car and leave the scene.

The suspects were arrested after an officer saw them running into an apartment on Southampton Drive, the release said. The department did not provide the address of the apartment.

The driver and a witness identified the suspects, the release said. The three "implicated themselves" in the crime during an interrogation, the release said, and two of the suspects also implicated themselves in a similar robbery of a Pizza Hut driver on Sunday.

Police arrested the three on suspicion of two counts of second-degree robbery. Johnson is being held at the Boone County Jail. His bail had yet to be determined as of Tuesday morning.

To be fair here guys, Sprite is pretty good. Totally worth some prison time.
