MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Memphis police have made several arrests in the robbery of a Memphis pizza delivery man.

The robbery took place January 25 in the 3400 block of Dobbin Ferry Drive Avenue. The victim told police that as he handed the pizza to the person he believed was the customer, four men came out of the shadows. Two of the men had guns.

"I was terrified. I didn't know what was going to happen," said the delivery man, who did not want to be identified.

The delivery man said the men robbed him of his cash and took this phone from his car. He says the robbers were actually polite, saying "Good cooperation, bro. Good cooperation. We appreciate this."

When it was over, the four guys took off and the supposed customer took off in the direction of the robbers.

On Wednesday, 20-year-old Dante Williams and 20-year-old Thomas Alford were arrested for this crime. Students from Oakhaven High School were also taken into custody, possibly related to the same crime.

"I feel great they have been arrested and justice has been served," the victim added.

WMC Action News 5 is still waiting on information from police about the arrest made at Oakhaven High School. Bond for both Williams and Alford has been set at $75,000.
