MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Police arrested a 23-year-old man in connection with the kidnapping and robbery of a pizza delivery man.

According to police, two men pointed a gun at the delivery man, demanded all of his money and forced him into the trunk of a car. It all happened back in October.

Melvin Wiggins, 23, is charged with aggravated robbery and aggravated kidnapping. The second suspect is still on the run.

"I mean, what could you do? I mean, most of the time when you order your pizza, you pay your money when they bring it up to you and you close the door behind," said a neighbor, who asked to remain anonymous, but says crime on Isabelle Street is not uncommon. "I watch myself, even if I have to come out here at night."

In October, police say the pizza delivery man gave Wiggins and the other suspect his wallet, which contained $82 and his I.D.

"It's messed up," added another neighbor, Nick Wray. "It's bad a person can't come through, deliver his pizza and do his job and not get hurt."

The two suspects abandoned the car after making the victim get inside the trunk.
