A pizza delivery driver was jumped and robbed late Wednesday in the Pine Manor community of south Fort Myers.

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office was called to an address at Cypress Drive and 9th Avenue at around 9:30 p.m.

A Domino’s store confirmed their driver was making a delivery of what turned out to be a “fake order” made so the suspect or suspects could rob the driver, who was pepper sprayed during the robbery.

The victim was taken to the hospital to treat injuries. The Domino’s location said the driver is OK.
