PONTIAC — Two Southfield men were arrested recently in connection with the robbery of a pizza delivery driver.

According to a news release from Maj. Christopher Wundrach, of the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office, around 8:40 p.m. Feb. 17, police were dispatched to the 400 block of Cameron Avenue on report of an armed robbery that had just occurred.

A man, 43, of Pontiac, told police that he had been called to the address for a pizza delivery and was robbed at gunpoint.

The man said that, when he exited his vehicle, two unknown men approached him. One of the men produced a sliver semi-automatic pistol, he told police, while the other demanded money.

“The victim stated that he turned over approximately $300 and several pizzas,” Wundrach said in the release.

The suspects then fled the scene.

Wundrach said that a K-9 unit responded to the scene and began a track from the last known location of the suspects, and police observed fresh footprints in the snow that led to a house in the 400 block of Emerson Avenue in Pontiac.

Police said deputies knocked on the door and met with the homeowner and several other subjects who were inside the home. Police also identified two men who matched the description of the suspects, provided by the victim.

The homeowner gave consent to search the house, Wundrach said, and a silver semi-automatic pistol with an extended magazine was located.

Police said the two men, both 18 and from Southfield, are being lodged at the Oakland County jail pending charges.
