INDIANAPOLIS – Two pizza delivery drivers were robbed just minutes apart Wednesday night.

According to reports from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, both incidents happened just before 10 p.m.

In the first robbery, a Domino’s Pizza employee was walking to a home in the 3300 block of Ashley Lane around 9:45 p.m. when a teenager approached him with a gun. The juvenile—described in the report as a “thin black male”—grabbed the employee by the collar and forced him to the ground.

A second juvenile then came from behind the building. The teens took the employee’s pizzas and got away with $14 after going through the worker’s pockets.

About five minutes later, a Hotbox Pizza employee tried to deliver a pizza in the 3700 block of North Meridian Street. The driver realized he had a problem with the address since it was an apartment building and he didn’t have an apartment number.

When he turned to go back to his car, he was approached by a man wearing a black hoodie who carried a semi-automatic handgun. The man told him to “give him all his money,” the report said. The deliveryman handed over about $150 from his pocket. The man also took a pizza before running away.

      Anybody dumb enough to risk spending years in jail for $150 and some pizza probably deserves LIFE in jail for being so stupid. get the stupids off the street.

    I hear these teenage thugs really don't like it when their intended victim draws a gun on them and starts shooting.

    Just an FYI.

    This is what happens if gun control is passed–the criminal had the gun and the unarmed law abiding person was the victim!! Do you think for one minute these punks care about any gun legislation? Politicians better wake up to this fact!!

      People that stay in lower income housing eat pizza too, and they shouldn't be punished for these lazy and violent kids. The job of these businesses is to provide a service and that's what insurance is for. Criminals will be criminals wheather if it's in Giest or Brightwood.

        >The job of these businesses is to provide a service and that's what insurance is for

        Okay. That's just stupid.

        So you're saying a business should risk the health and lives of its employees so lower income people can eat pizza? And if something happens, then the loss, whatever it may be, can be fixed by $$$?

        Are you truly that dense?

        > Criminals will be criminals wheather if it's in Giest or Brightwood.

        True. However, they do committ criminal acts far more often in Brightwood than they do Geist.

    A customer of mine who delivered pizzas has shot two guys within the last five years. He was a marine that does this as a part time job in the winter. He talks about it like it's just another day. Semper Fi
