A hungry South Carolina man tried to rob a pizza delivery driver by shocking him in the belly with a stun gun but the attempt failed, Daytona Beach police said.
Christopher Dondre Collins,19, was unable to wrench the pies from the delivery man’s hands despite the attack with the stun gun, police said.
According to a Daytona Beach police arrest report, Collins called a Papa John’s Pizza on Monday night and ordered two pies for $26.09 and directed the food be delivered to 525 N. Halifax Ave., unit 4. But when the delivery driver got to the address, he noticed the unit was dark and it appeared no one was home.
The delivery man then called the telephone number at 8:43 p.m. and Collins told him he sent him to the wrong apartment and that he would come meet him. Collins made small talk with the delivery man and said he was a Bethune-Cookman University student.
Police determined that Collins is not a Bethune-Cookman student, said police spokesman Jimmie Flynt.
Collins then asked how much he owed for the food. When the delivery guy told him the amount due, he walked toward another apartment and returned a few seconds later, police said.
Collins asked again how much he owed and as the delivery man used a flashlight to show him the receipt, Collins stuck a stun gun to the delivery guy’s belly, police said.
Collins then tried to grab the pizza but the deliveryman forcefully pulled it away from him, police investigators said.
Collins then ran west toward the river.
Police learned the same phone number had been used before to order pizzas at the Overlook Apartments, Apt. 524 at 100 Seabreeze Blvd., and went there. While in the hallway officers could hear men talking and heard one say, “I tried to get the pizza but he wouldn’t give it up,” a police report shows.
Police entered the apartment and found Collins and two of his brothers in the apartment. The pizza delivery man positively identified Collins and he was placed under arrest.
A search of the apartment turned up the stun gun and the telephone used in the attempted robbery, police said.
“The defendant (Collins) stated that he was hungry and was just trying to rob the pizza guy of the pizza,” police wrote in their report.
