AKRON, Ohio — A group of what appeared to be children robbed an Akron pizza delivery driver at gunpoint, robbing the driver of three pizzas and a Sierra Mist, according to a report from the Akron Police Department.

On Monday afternoon, police responded to a robbery call at 1 p.m., where a 21-year-old Papa John's pizza delivery driver said he was in the middle of making a delivery when a group of boys approached him.

The delivery driver told police that one of the boys demanded money. After telling him that he had no money, one of the other males hit him on the head with a gun.

After taking the pizza and soda, the group of boys fled the area.

The pizza delivery driver described the group as young boys, ranging from 10 to 15 years old, all wearing dark clothing and ski masks. Two of the four boys were armed with guns.

The robbery remains under investigation.
