MICHIGAN CITY – Four teens between the age of 14 and 16 are in police custody, charged with robbing a pizza delivery man at gunpoint Monday night on East 10th Street.

Michigan City Police responded to a 911 call at 6:42 p.m. about an armed robbery in the 700 block of East 10th Street, according to a police report.

"A Domino’s Pizza employee was making a delivery in that block when he was approached by multiple juveniles," according to MCPD Chief of Services Royce Williams.

"One of the juveniles displayed a handgun and a demand was made for the delivery person’s currency. Currency was obtained by the suspects as was the would-be delivered food."

Responding officers canvassed the area and "were able to track the suspect’s footprints in the recent snow to a home in the same block," he said.

Inside the home, police recovered a handgun and other evidence of the crime, Williams said.

Five juvenile suspects from inside the home were taken into custody. Four of them, three boys and a girl, were charged with felony armed robbery, according to the report. One of the boys was 16 and other two were 15, police said. The girl was 14.

Another 16-year-old boy was charged with misdemeanor resisting law enforcement, according to police.

The Domino's employee, a 33-year-old man, was not injured.

Anyone with additional information about the incident should call Det. Cpl. Anna Painter at (219) 874-3221, ext. 1077.
