     A Mary Esther man who delivers pizzas was robbed at gunpoint around 10:45 Sunday night outside a home in Fort Walton Beach.

The 25-year old victim says the Domino's Pizza at the corner of Duloft St. and Eglin Parkway got an order around 10:20 for two pizzas and thirty wings to be delivered to a home on Manring Drive. When he arrived and approached the house, two men armed with handguns came out of the bushes, grabbed the pizza and demanded money. They then left in his car, a 2001 Oldsmobile Alero.

     The car was later found abandoned with minor damage near a business on Beal Parkway.

     The first suspect is described as a thinly built, young black male, about 5'10", wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and black pants. The second suspect is also a thin black male, about six feet tall. He was wearing a tan hooded sweatshirt and dark pants.

      Anyone with information on the crime is asked to contact the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office at 850-651-7400 or Emerald Coast Crime Stoppers at 863-TIPS.
