Pizza Delivery Driver Reports Being Robbed At Gunpoint

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -- "I guess I got too relaxed, and when he pulled it out, it really caught me off guard,' said Leslie Brown.

Domino's Pizza Assistant Manager, Leslie Brown, says she was robbed at gunpoint while she was delivering pizzas late Friday night. She says the robbery happened off Johnson Avenue, near the intersection of Russell Drive and Sybel Cove. Brown says she pulled over because she didn't recognize the address given. That's when she noticed two men.

"I ended up getting flagged over, saying hey we ordered pizza, it was us. I got out of the car, went to hand them their pizza's, told them how much it was, and he pulled out a gun," said Brown.

According to the police report, Brown says one man grabbed the pizzas and ran. The other kept the gun pointed at her, and demanded money.

"....Tried to take my phone, but it was on the other side of the car, so he couldn't even get that. He tried to take my car, but he couldn't drive a standard," said Brown.

Brown says the gunman told her she was lucky the car was a standard....then Brown says the gunman walked away.

That's when she says she got back in her car, and followed him.

"I was on the phone with the cops the whole time...he was wearing this, he looks like this, he's walking in this direction, he's walking on this road. I was just following along side of him until he darted off behind some apartments," said Brown.

Leslie says employees are told to comply if ever put in a dangerous situation like that.  She also says when leaving the stores, drivers never carry more than $20.00.

"He ended up walking away with not even $25.00 worth of pizzas, and not even $15.00 .....it's just sad," said Brown.

Despite what happened, Leslie says she will continue working at Domino's.
