From Staff Reports
Arlington police are searching for two men who held a gun to a Pizza Hut employee’s head and then robbed the store.
The robbery took place about 11 p.m. Wednesday in the 3400 block of South Watson Road, Arlington police said.
A 20-year-old woman was talking on her cell phone outside the Pizza Hut when “one suspect approached her from behind, covered her mouth and put a gun to her head,” police said. The men then dragged her to the Pizza Hut and robbed the business.
Arlington police said the two men were also responsible for robbing a 43-year-old man at an apartment complex in the 3300 block of South Watson Road earlier that evening. The robbers tried to drag the man to a dark area, but he was able to break free, run and hide.
One of the robbers wore a camouflage mask and one was armed with an automatic handgun, police said.

I delivered Pizza's for a time being. We had some "off limit after dark" areas for reasons like this.. one of our drivers was surrounded in her vehicle by about 10-15 guys. She did the smart thing and just floored it and they moved :P
She carried a stun-gun after that. I think if I started delivery again I would carry a gun-gun.
Pizza delivery guys should be armed with at least one fully automatic weapon and full body armor. This is a screwed up world when someone like that gets fired for defending themselves. Dead or fired, your choice.
screw corporate policy, i would have my .45 at all times. if i have to use it, it's probably time to look for a new job anyway!
I had a few close calls delivering to the goverment funded housing complexs, I can share those storys if you wish.

Here is my story, summed up I was robbed at gun point and then 2 weeks later I was being chased by a gunman telling me to "wait mother fu*ker"
I quit and will never let me gun not be on my side after that crap.

I did the pizza jockey thing...back in the late 1980's and we where only worried about the "bad cities". Not anymore. Wow. I've always been a great tipper for them. (Min $5.00).
Our "worst" neighborhood in Broadview Heights, Ohio was the apartment complex, that I lived in... It was the only apartment complex in the whole darn city, so it was considered the "lower" end of town. I lived there for 2 years before I got married.
I averaged $11.00 an hour, I kept track. Gas was at .99 and jumped to $1.19 a gallon! Man...that sucked. We where only getting $5.00 an hour plus .50 a delivery. But tips where good for most customers. You gave them good service and they gave you 1-2 bucks. Some would never tip...we had our ways of getting even with them.... We where young and stupid.
I would NEVER suggest anyone deliver now. I carry a gun with the notion of keeping myself out of situations where I might need to use it. Driving around with a pizza sigh on my car just advertises "food and money."
I wouldn't suggest anyone be a food delivery driver. PERIOD!
With gas prices the way they are and steadily rising, you can't possibly make any money. Besides the fact they need to be carrying a gun.
Had a friend of mine do some pizza running for a while. He was the only one that was willing to go to the "bad" parts of town. Why?
He always had
