Pizza delivery employee carjacked at gunpoint in north Colorado Springs

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - A delivery driver was on his way to drop off a pizza when he was forced at gunpoint to give up his car.

"We had a Pizza Hut driver that indicated he had responded to an address, and when he got there, a suspect approached him with a handgun, put it to his head, and said, 'Give me your car,'" CSPD Sgt. Steve Noblitt told 11 News. "So [the suspect] took his car and left the area."

The gunman was last seen heading northbound in the victim's car, a beige 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier with Idaho license plate 1LE3147. It has damage to the driver's side.

The crime was reported in the 800 block of Westmoreland Road just before 7 Monday night. Noblitt said the victim was left unharmed but shaken up.

"He's OK given the circumstances, but certainly this is a traumatic thing on top of having your property taken," Noblitt said.

Noblitt told 11 News it's still unclear if the carjacking was an opportunity crime by a random suspect, or if the driver was set up by whoever called in the pizza order.

The carjacker is described as a 5-foot-10 Hispanic man with a thin build who was wearing dark clothing.

Anyone who sees the vehicle is asked to call police at 444-7000.
