A Toppers driver had parked his vehicle at Eastridge Apartments to make a delivery of an unknown number of pizzas and saw a man approaching. Moments later, another man wearing a mask ran up and demanded the pizzas. The driver saw something in the man’s hand and wasn’t sure if it was a weapon and handed over the pizzas.
