Man armed with gun robs, threatens to kill pizza delivery driver

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Police are on the lookout for a man who robbed and threatened to kill a pizza delivery driver in North Charleston.

On Wednesday night, a pizza delivery driver was delivering food to an apartment on Butler Street. As the driver was looking for the address, he slowed his car down and opened his window slightly.

The suspect then approached the victim's vehicle. The victim asked if he was at the correct address and the suspect said that he was not.

When the victim reached the correct address, he got out the vehicle to deliver the pizza. The suspect then approached the driver from behind, took out a gun and ordered the victim to give him the pizza and money.

The suspect threatened to kill the victim if he did not do as he was told. After the victim gave the suspect $20 and pizza, the suspect ordered the victim to leave the area.

The victim returned to the restaurant and called police.

Officers then responded to the apartment where the order was supposed to be delivered. Police say the people at the apartment ordered the pizza but were not involved in the robbery.
