A pizza delivery driver reported he was held up at gunpoint and robbed Monday afternoon.

A Moultrie police officer was called to 12th Street Northwest at 3:59 p.m. Monday about a robbery. The officer met with the driver, who stated he went to a house on the street to make a pizza delivery.

The driver said a black male told him to go to the front door of the house and stated everyone was inside waiting on the pizza. Before the driver got out of his vehicle, however, the man pulled out a gun and demanded money.

He told the officer he gave the man what money he had on him to make change. The robber then fled the scene, running toward 11th Avenue Northwest and the West Bypass, and the driver followed the robber until he ran into the woods near the West Bypass.

The robber was described as a black male wearing dark clothes with a bandana tied around his forehead. The driver was not injured during the robbery.
