Pizza delivery man attacked

COVINGTON - A Domino's Pizza delivery man was assaulted and robbed by a gang of four to five black men when he attempted to deliver a pizza to Fieldstone Lane in Covington, according to a Newton County Sheriff's Office incident report.

The man told deputies he was sent to 305 Fieldstone Lane with $39 worth of pizza on Friday night about 9:45. When he got out of his vehicle, he said he heard a "spraying noise," and that's when the men jumped him and sprayed black spray paint in his face, Investigator Sharron Stewart said.

The gang also took $35 in cash, his cell phone and the insulated bag containing the pizza valued at $135.

The man did not require medical treatment.

The case has been turned over to NCSO Investigator Mickey Kitchens.
