A female pizza driver was struck in the face Sunday by one teenager while another laughed and stole pizza from the woman during her delivery, a report by the Roswell Police Department said.

According to a narrative by an RPD officer, at about 6:36 p.m. Sunday, police were dispatched to the Papa John’s at 625 North Main St. in reference to a robbery.

According to the restaurant’s manager, a female employee had returned to the business after attempting to deliver a pizza to a home along the 1100 block of Kenlea Avenue.

The victim, a 28-year-old woman, was battered by two male teenagers during the delivery, the manager told police. The manager added that the employee was sent home after the incident.

Police later were able to contact the now-former employee at Mesa Verde Apartments. According to the victim, when she had parked her vehicle on Kenlea Avenue at the entrance to the alley, she observed men walking through the field near the 1100 block of the area.

“(The victim) stated that she turned around after exiting her car and saw a teenage white male with a small tattoo on the left side of his neck and wearing black pants, and a teenage Hispanic male with long hair, wearing blue shorts — standing right behind her,” the report read. “(The victim) then stated that the white male struck her in the face and pushed her against the car. (The woman) also stated that the Hispanic male laughed and stole the pizza-warming bag with a value of $10, and the pizza with a value of $18.47.”

The victim also told authorities that she saw the two unknown men go back toward the alley as she got into her car and headed back to Papa John’s.

After the Criminal Investigations Division of the RPD was contacted, the victim met with authorities.

“I observed a red mark on her left cheek,” an officer wrote. “Photographs were taken of her injury.”

An RPD detective later advised the officer that she would go to Kenlea Avenue for further investigation.

The strong-armed robbery report has since been referred over to the CID.
