It could have been a run-of-the-mill Sunday night Domino's pizza delivery.

But for one Domino's driver, the April night ended with him being pistol-whipped, tackled to the ground by three people and robbed of two pizzas and $15, Hamilton County court records show. One suspect was arrested Friday.

The delivery man was sent to a home at 417 W. 40th St. on April 28 with two pizzas in tow. He walked up to the front door, which is where he encountered the first suspect, later identified as 19-year-old Terrick Thorne, court records state.

The victim told police that Thorne demanded money and hit him with a pistol over his forehead. Two other suspects, who have not been identified, joined in the melee and forced the delivery man to the ground and physically assaulted him, according to court records.

The attackers took the pizzas and money from the man, and tried to steal his vehicle, too. But they were unsuccessful, court records show.

Police noted the man had several minor cuts all over and an injury to the left side of his forehead. He was treated by emergency medical personnel on scene and cleared.

Over the course of the investigation, police discovered the home to which the pizza was delivered was associated with one of the suspects: Thorne.

Investigators showed the victim a photo lineup, and he "positively identifie[d]" Thorne as the man who pistol-whipped him.

Thorne was charged with aggravated robbery and booked into the Hamilton County Jail on May 3. His bond was set at $50,000, according to court records.

Police say they are still working to identify the remaining two attackers.

Thorne has an arrest history in Hamilton County dating back to 2017. Most of his charges are for drug- and traffic-related violations.
