Police Searching For Teen In Connection With Pizza Delivery Carjacking
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -A pizza delivery driver helped to apprehend two teens accused of carjacking him the day before.
However, police are still searching for a third suspect.
Just one day after a pizza delivery driver was attacked by armed teens, he got his revenge.
Inomjon Madumarov, 29, works as a driver at Riviera Pizza.
He delivered a pizza Tuesday evening in Northview Heights, but minutes later, he was called back to correct the order.
When he returned to the 300-block of Mount Pleasant Road, he was approached by a group of teens. They were armed with a handgun, a shotgun and a baseball bat, which they used to hit Madumarov over the head.
Three teens took off in the Madumarov’s silver Hyundai Elantra, while the others took off on foot.
The next day both police and the victim were looking for the stolen car and spotted it at the same time.
As police began to pursue the suspects, the victim, who was driving a friend’s car, blocked the street.
As a result, he was T-boned by his own car and the suspects again took off on foot.
Madumarov chased them, grabbed them by their coats and tacked them. He held them there until police arrived.
Police took two 15-year olds into custody and have charged them as adults with offenses including robbery and aggravated assault.
Madumarov was not armed during the chase and police say he is lucky it ended as it did.
They do not recommend victim’s taking matters into their own hands.
Police are now seeking at least one more teen who was involved in the initial carjacking.
It’s believed that up to eight teens may have been in the initial group that approached the victim.
It’s not clear if the teens lured Madumarov to the area by ordering a pizza, or just happened to be in the area when he returned.
Madumarov was treated and released for the head wound he suffered during the initial carjacking.
