Three teenagers were arrested early Wednesday in connection to an armed robbery of a pizza delivery driver.

Evanston police arrested Robert Hammond, 19; Scotty Jobe Scott, 18; and Savon Griffith, 17, around 12:30 a.m. after officers responded to a call from the driver who was delivering an order in the 2000 block of Howard Street.

The delivery driver told police that two unknown men approached him and asked if he had their order.

He began the transaction, and one of the men pulled out a gun and held it to the driver's head, according to police. The other man pushed something hard into his side, an object the victim told police he believed was another gun.

The two men then robbed the victim of $260 in cash, his cell phone, lottery tickets and the pizza. They then ran into a car which proceeded to drive off.

After obtaining descriptions of the offenders and their car, officers spotted a vehicle that matched the description. When officers approached the car, they found three men in the car and a pizza box in the back seat. After a search of the car they recovered all the stolen money and objects, as well as a BB gun.

The three teens were all charged with one felony count of aggravated robbery and will appear in court next Thursday.
