Two youths have been charged with robbing and assaulting a deliveryman for Papa John's Pizza.

Corey Javon Craddock, 18, and a juvenile are charged with aggravated robbery.

In the incident on S. Greenwood Avenue, the deliveryman said he arrived at the residence and saw two black males standing out front.

He said he gave one of the males soft drinks, but did not hand over the pizza because he had not paid. He said the man then punched him, knocking him to the sidewalk.

The pair ran off with the pizza and $40 they took from him.

Police later got a call about a suspicious vehicle on S. Highland Park Avenue. It was learned the blue Hyunda Elantra was connected with the robbery.

Video showed three black males exit the vehicle and go to the trunk. They change clothes and put on hoodies and gloves. The driver stays in the car.

The front and rear passenger go around to the front of the house on S. Greenwood. A few minutes later they are seen running back to the vehicle with a pizza in hand.

Police later confronted three black males as they returned to the car.

They included Craddock and the juvenile who was charged. The third person was not believed to be involved, it was stated.
