Five jacked pizzas...
Being the pizza man ain't a picnic.

The hours are long, the wages are short, and your only cinematic role model is Bill Maher. Also -- it's dangerous.

We wrote about an instance in which a 60-year-old deliveryman was beaten up and relieved of his pizza earlier this month. Last night, in what appears to be a more coolly organized affair, a 54-year-old pizza man was held up at gunpoint and deprived of five pies and cash.

After a female suspect ordered the quintet of pizzas to a bogus address on the 1500 block of Underwood, the middle-aged Asian delivery driver was set upon by two black men in their 20s or 30s at around 9 p.m.

One of the robbers pointed a gun at the driver and demanded his possessions. The loss in the subsequent police writeup is listed as "5 pizzas, US currency."

The amount of currency -- or the value of the five pizzas -- is not yet known.
