Sonora, CA — A thief assaulted a Round Table Pizza delivery driver while robbing her.
The incident happened Saturday around 4:45 p.m. on Lambert Lake Road. Investigators report a Hispanic male flagged down the female driver claiming he had ordered the pizza. When the driver got out to hand the pizza to the man, the suspect reached into the car, shut off the engine and took the keys. Investigators say he then used physical force to steal the driver’s cell phone, money bag, and even took the pizza. The suspect then threw the keys on the road ordering to the driver, “Don’t leave for 15 minutes”, according to Sheriff’s officials.
