13-year-old charged in connection to beating, abduction of pizza delivery driver

PITTSBURGH — A 13-year-old has been arrested in connection to the robbery and abduction of a pizza delivery driver in Pittsburgh’s Elliott neighborhood earlier this month.

The teen has not been identified. According to a Pittsburgh Public Safety spokeswoman, the juvenile, who is being charged with robbery, aggravated assault and kidnapping, will not be charged as an adult.

A male pizza delivery driver told officers on Jan. 3 that three males with guns demanded his money, keys, wallet, phone and shoes. They allegedly beat him and put him in the trunk of his car before driving an unknown distance. They then abandoned the car.

The driver told police he was able to get into the car through the backseat and walk to call police.

No other arrests have been made so far.
