TULSA, Oklahoma -- A pizza delivery driver was robbed of his money and his pizzas late Thursday night in Tulsa. Police say the driver made a stop at St. Thomas II Apartments, 6415 S. Newport Avenue, at about 11 p.m. to deliver a pizza.

The Papa John's employee was in a dark hallway when a man approached him and pointed a silver semi-automatic pistol at him. The suspect demanded money, and the victim complied, police say in a news release.

The delivery driver was told to walk away, and as he did so he saw a second suspect taking the remaining pizzas out of his car.

Police have issued descriptions of the two suspects. The man with the gun is a 25- to 30-year-old black male, 5'10" to 6' tall and about 180 pounds. He was dressed in a white T-shirt and dark shorts.

The second suspect is a black male, 18 to 21 years of age, 5'5" to 5'7" and about 150 pounds. Police did not have a clothing description.
