Three arrested in Dalton for robbing a pizza delivery driver at knifepoint

Three teenagers were arrested in Dalton, Ga., after police said they put a knife to a pizza delivery driver and stole $70 in tips from his pockets.

Joshua Garcia, 18, Jonathan Gilbreath, 19, and a 14-year-old were all charged with armed robbery and aggravated assault, said Dalton police spokesman Bruce Frazier.

Late Tuesday night, a driver was delivering a pizza to 18-year-old Garcia, who said he had forgotten his wallet and went to knock on an apartment door, Frazier said.

The driver told the police he became uncomfortable and, when he went to get the pizza off the top of the car, another man grabbed him and told him he had a knife, Frazier said. He struggled until he told police he felt the blade of a knife at his throat.

The two teens, along with the 14-year-old, took the cash and the pizza and fled.

Police found the three suspects hiding at a nearby apartment, Frazier said, with a knife and a pizza inside the apartment.
