A pizza delivery driver was robbed at knifepoint and assaulted Saturday night in Northwest Roanoke, according to police.
Police spokeswoman Aisha Johnson said officers responded about 11:45 p.m. after a Domino's Pizza driver called to report he had been attacked in the 800 block of Staunton Avenue. The driver told police he was making a delivery when he was approached by three males, one of whom brandished a knife and demanded money.

Police have described the suspect with the knife as a black male about 6 feet 5 inches tall and about 180 pounds. He was said to be wearing a ski mask and a white sweater with an eagle emblem on the front.
The other two suspects were described by police as about 6 feet tall and weighing 180 pounds.
An estimate about the suspects' ages was not available Monday.
No arrests have been made.
