A Jets Pizza delivery driver was robbed at gunpoint while delivering to a vacant home on the city's west side Sunday night, police said.

The armed robbery took place about 8:45 p.m. at a vacant home on the 14300 block of Dacosta, which is north of Schoolcraft and just west of Lahser.

The driver arrived to deliver more than $40 worth of pizza, and was met with a black male, believed to be 30 to 40 years old, with a beard, and wearing a blue shirt, dark pants, and a fisherman's hat. 

But rather than pull out a wallet, the suspect produced a handgun.

The driver dropped the pizza and fled on foot. Someone picked him up and dropped him off at a nearby gas station, where he called 911.
