Pizza delivery driver robbed at knifepoint

COFFS Harbour police are hunting for two men after a 39-year-old pizza delivery driver was robbed at knife point.

Authorities are chasing the pair - described as being either teenagers or in their early 20s - after they set upon the driver on Friday night.

The driver was walking in Prince Street when a man approached and demanded he hand over the pizzas.

They then ran from the area with a third person.

The driver sustained a small cut on his right thumb.

Officers would like to speak with two men who may be able to assist with inquiries.
