KAMLOOPS – A pizza delivery man was finishing up his shift for Papa John’s in Kamloops when his car has hijacked by two men at gun point just after midnight.

RCMP say the victim was parked at the City View complex at 1801 Highway 5A at around 12:15 a.m. when he was approached by two men.

“One of the males produced a handgun and demanded the victim’s vehicle,” Const. Jason Epp says in a media release.

The robbers jumped into the car and took off. They were last seen driving west on Rogers Way.

“The victim was not injured in the robbery but was understandably shaken,” Epp says.
