“When she went to grab the bag of pizzas and step out of the vehicle, two males charged her vehicle, to where one male, suspect #1, took his hands, pressing (the victim’s) shoulders against the car,” the report says. “The other male, suspect #2, stood to the left of suspect #1, so (the victim) could not get a good look at him. Suspect #1 then ordered (the victim) to give him all the money she had on her.”

The victim told officers she then gave the suspects all the money she had from earlier deliveries.
