MANATEE — Two assailants late Sunday mugged a pizza delivery man in Palmetto and robbed him of his pizzas, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.
About 11:25 p.m. the man was attempting to deliver four pizzas in the 200 block of 19th Street East, Palmetto. He couldn't find the address so he called the number on the order.
The person on the other end said he could see the driver and told him to keep going. When he told him to stop, the delivery man pulled into a driveway, according to a sheriff's office report.
He got out of the car and placed four pizzas on a step. That's when two men emerged and began punching him.
