Roanoke, Va. — A Roanoke pizza driver simply trying to make a delivery was not only robbed but beaten so severely his boss says he's in intensive care at a local hospital.
The assault happened around midnight Monday in the 3700 block of Springvale Street off of Yellow Mountain Road in the Garden City area.
Witnesses say the delivery man was bleeding from his head by the time they got to him.
Tia Sizer was one of those people who happened to be standing outside that night watching some commotion going on at another house.
It all went down fast and it was dark but Sizer says out of nowhere she saw the delivery man get out of his car and then recalls at least three people popping out of the bushes rushing the man. A few kicks, a few hits and then she says the culprits disappeared.
"He had blood all around him. Me and my sister and a couple other people went down there and picked him up. He couldn't really remember his name at the time. He couldn't really remember nothing," says Sizer.
