MOUNT OLIVE -- A Domino's Pizza delivery man was uninjured when two men lured him to an apparently vacant house and robbed him at gunpoint Monday night.

The suspects made off with the pizza that the driver was carrying, as well as $20 in cash.

The 29-year-old victim was carrying a pizza to a home at 305 Hidden Valley Drive when two black men approached him.

One of them reportedly stuck a gun to his stomach and snatched the pie.

The armed suspect demanded the victim's cell phone and cash. He told the robber he only had $20, which was taken from him. His phone was not.

The victim told police one of the suspects just stood by and watched everything happen.

Both suspects ran away after the pizza and cash were stolen.

Deputies were unable to find the suspects after a search of Hidden Valley Drive and nearby areas.

A report filed on the incident said the name used for the delivery was George Tate, and the address was 305 Hidden Valley Drive.

The home appeared to be vacant, and the robbery happened in the street in front of the house.
