PALATKA, Fla. – A pizza delivery man was carjacked and robbed late Sunday night north of Palatka, according to the Putnam County Sheriff's Office.

The 22-year-old Domino's delivery man, who is not being identified because the robbers have not been caught, told police he was looking for the address for a delivery around 11 p.m. and stopped to ask three men at the corner of Oak Street for directions.

The victim told deputies that the three men pulled a handgun on him, forced him out of his car and took his keys, money and cellphone before forcing him to walk away.

The victim was able to get to another phone and called the Sheriff's Office.

The car was found at the scene of the robbery, deputies said. A K-9 team also found a discarded handgun and shirt nearby.

The Sheriff's Office is continuing to investigate the robbery.
