CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Two teens have been arrested after a phony pizza order led to the attack of a pizza delivery man.

According to the Clarksville Police Department, the victim attempted to deliver three pizzas to Orchard Park Apartments on Sunday, only to find out the people living there had not ordered anything.

As the delivery man was walking back to his car, two or more males jumped him, taking his tip money and the three pizzas.

The victim said one of the males was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and the other was wearing a red one. He said the males then ran off toward Grand View Apartments, which is east of Orchard Park.

A canine searched the perimeter but there was no success in locating the suspects.

A day later, an officer responded to a suspicious person with a weapon call near the intersection of Minglewood Drive and Cunningham Lane.

The officer saw the suspect throw a gun into the wood line. The suspect was detained and put in the patrol car, admitting that he stole the BB gun from Walmart.

After dealing with the shoplifting charge, the officer started asking the suspect if he knew anything about the pizza delivery worker being robbed.

The suspect began giving names and revealed another planned attack on a pizza delivery worker.

This information led to the arrest of two teens in connection to the robbery.

If anyone has additional information related to this incident, please call Detective Hurst at 931-648-0656 Ext. 5263 or the CrimeStoppers TIPS Hotline at 931-645-TIPS (8477).
