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.

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