WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Officers with the Wilmington Police Department are looking for three men accused of robbing a Domino's Pizza delivery driver Sunday afternoon.

According to police, the driver was taking food to a home in the 1600 block of East Plaza of the Houston Moore housing development around 4:15 p.m.

The driver told authorities he noticed someone wearing a black hoodie as he approached the stairwell and was met by two other people, wearing red hoodies, as he walked up the steps.

Police say one of the suspects pointed a rifle and another had a handgun.

The men in hoodies took property from the delivery driver and ran away.

One suspect is said to be heavy set, and another has cornrows. Police also think a woman may have helped the three men.
