NATCHEZ, Miss. — A final suspect has been arrested in connection with the assault of a 64-year-old pizza delivery driver at a vacant residence in Mississippi.

The Natchez Democrat reports 19-year-old Jumorris Pernell turned himself in on Wednesday. Pernell along with 19-year-olds Isaac Gatlin and Kordell Summers are charged with robbery and simple assault.

Adams County Sheriff’s Office Maj. Jerry Brown says Gatlin ordered a pizza to the house Sept. 7 to lure and rob the delivery driver. When the driver arrived, Gatlin asked for change for a $100 bill, which the driver didn’t have.

Brown says Summers and Pernell jumped out of the bushes and assaulted the driver, who suffered no major injuries.

No money was taken during the robbery, but three pizzas were stolen.

It’s unclear if the teens have lawyers.
