Pizza delivery man robbed of cash, told to take off pants


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Police say a robbery left a Papa John's delivery man without his cash and his pants.

The delivery man told Wilmington Police when he arrived at the home on Marsteller Street around 10 p.m. Sunday, a man at the front door pulled out a handgun and told him to take his pants and shoes off.

The suspect then allegedly took the delivery man's cash and told him to run off.

The victim described the robber as a black male, approximately 6'1", wearing baggy pants.
