Horry County police were called at 9:40 p.m. Jan. 5 to 266 Airport Road for the incident, which officers noted appeared to be an abandoned house, according to the report. The Domino’s Pizza driver told officers he was delivering a pizza and saw a man standing in front of the home when he arrived.
The driver said the man told him he had to get his wallet and ran behind the house, according to the report. The driver said three men then walked up behind him and one had a gun and they demanded his cash.
The robbers took $20 cash, the pizza and soda before they ran behind the house, according to the report. Officers searched the area, but did not find the robbers, who had bandanas covering their faces.
