Pizzaman robbed

A pizza delivery driver was robbed after a group of men threatened him with a knife on Burnham Road this morning.

The incident happened at approximately 1.30am after the driver had arrived to deliver food to a property in the area.

A group of men approached the driver, threatened the victim with a knife before demanding he hand over the food and cash.

The driver, fearing for his safety, dropped the pizza and handed over a small amount of cash before the offenders fled the scene towards Yeovil Road.

The first offender is described as a mixed race man, 5’7” tall with a skinny build, wearing a dark hooded top and dark trousers. The further two offenders are both described as men, approximately 5’7” tall, with skinny builds and wearing dark hooded tops and dark trousers - one had a scarf over his face.
