A 38-year-old man was arrested in possession of stolen pizzas, money and a fake gun after he allegedly robbed a pizza deliveryman in Los Angeles County on Thursday.

Deputies responded around 2:30 p.m. to reports of an armed robbery in the 8400 block of Bradwell Avenue in unincorporated Whittier, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

A deliveryman told authorities he was delivering pizzas when he was approached by a man who allegedly demanded all of his property at gunpoint, officials said. The deliveryman complied with the demands and the robber ran away, authorities said.

After a search of the area, authorities detained a 38-year-old Pico Rivera man at a convenience store less than a mile away. The man was allegedly found with the victim’s property and pizzas.
