Pizza driver kidnapped, robbed seconds after delivering pizza

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A Domino's Pizza delivery driver was kidnapped and held at gunpoint.

The crime happened just after midnight Monday. The driver told Memphis Police Department that three men came up to him after he delivered a pizza on Fernleaf Avenue.

The police report says one of the men told the worker, "remain calm or I will kill you."

The men demanded money from the driver. He gave them the $47 dollars he had, but they said it was not enough.

One of the men forced the driver into his vehicle and made him drive to an ATM at his bank on Covington Pike to withdraw $300.

That was still not enough for the kidnapper. He forced the driver to go to another ATM at Yale Food and Fuel, but he was unable to withdraw any more money, because the delivery driver's account had reached its limit.

The kidnapper forced the driver to take him to an abandoned building on Covington Pike and drop him off. He threatened the driver again before making off with all the money and the driver's cellphone.

Domino's Pizza released a statement saying safety is their priority:

At Domino's, our number 1 priority is the safety and well being of our team members we are deeply concerned that criminals would put the safety of our team members at risk. We are working with crime stoppers and MPD to help catch these criminals. Our local Domino's will be offering a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of these individuals.

MPD has not released a description of the suspect.

The gunmen are still on the loose. In the report, police say there may be surveillance video that can point them in the right direction.

If you have any information, you are asked to call the Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH.
