2 teens ar­rested for as­sault of pizza de­liv­ery driver

Starkville Daily News - - AROUND TOWN -

NATCHEZ — Two teenagers have been ar­rested in con­nec­tion with the as­sault of a 64-year-old pizza de­liv­ery driver at a va­cant house in Mis­sis­sippi.

The Natchez Demo­crat re­ports 19-year-olds Isaac Gatlin and Kordell Sum­mers were ar­rested Tues­day and charged with rob­bery and sim­ple as­sault.

Adams County Sher­iff's Of­fice Maj. Jerry Brown says Gatlin or­dered a pizza to the house on Sept. 7 to lure and rob the de­liv­ery driver. When the driver ar­rived, Gatlin asked for change for a $100 bill, which the driver didn't have.

Brown says Sum­mers and an­other man jumped out of the bushes and as­saulted the driver, who suf­fered no ma­jor in­juries.

No money was taken dur­ing the rob­bery, but three piz­zas were stolen. Au­thor­i­ties are search­ing for a third sus­pect.

It's un­clear if the teens have lawyers.
