LANSING - A pizza delivery driver gets the tip of a handgun pointed in his direction Sunday night in Lansing. Shortly before 10'clock police were called to the 400 block of Clifford Street. The pizza delivery driver tells police that he drove their to deliver an order. When he arrived a young man on the porch pointed a gun at him and demanded his money and food. He says two other men came forward to assist in the robbery.

The delivery man gave up his cash and pizza, and the thieves ran away towards Hunter Park. No shots were fired and no one was hurt. The owner of the house says he was inside sleeping, and had not ordered anything.

Anyone who may have seen anything unusual near Hunter Park or the 400 block of Clifford Street is asked to call Lansing police. 483-7600.

    my friend's boyfriend was robbed and stabbed delivering food in Lansing for Famous Taco. He said it seemed like a gang initiation.. Lansing PD needs to step it up, or this is going to keep happening more and more. Maybe delivery places should send two or three people on a trip so they are less likely to get taken advantage of.

    Random people sit on my porch and order pizza all the time! This story sounds a little bit sketchy.

    No-good scum, robbing a gainfully employed person, this is just awful. Here's a person trying hard to make a living at a low-paying job, and has to get robbed at gunpoint. The pizza was probaby worth more than any cash he might have had on him.
