Johannesburg – A Debonairs Pizza delivery man was robbed of the pizza and his motorcycle in the Joburg CBD last Saturday night, according to police.
Police spokesperson Captain Xoli Mbele said police recovered empty pizza boxes and the hijacked delivery motorcycle, as well as the weapon that two men allegedly used to commit the crime.
He said the driver for Debonairs Pizza was waiting at a traffic light at corner Mooi and Fox streets when two suspects approached him.
“The victim was on his way to deliver pizza to customers who ordered them. While stationary at the traffic lights two suspects approached him, one of them pointed what appeared to be a firearm at him and they took the motorbike and drove off,” Captain Xoli Mbele said.
He added that the tracker was subsequently activated and police found the two suspects, along with the motorcycle, and the boxes of pizza which were empty.
Police also discovered that the weapon used in the crime was in fact a toy gun.
