ATLANTA, Ga. (WSB-TV) -- A pizza delivery man carjacked at gunpoint still delivered the pizzas he was carrying before running for help.

The driver told Channel 2's Amy Napier Viteri off camera he saw the customer and wanted to finish the job before calling police.

"I didn't know it happened right here. Wow," neighbor Jordan Elgin told Viteri.

Police said the driver pulled up to the home on McDaniel Street in southwest Atlanta where Elgin and others live.

"As he pulled up and got out of his vehicle, he was approached by several males armed with handguns," said officer John Chafee with Atlanta police.

According to the report, the driver told investigators two young men pointed revolvers at him and ordered him to "give it up," referring to his car.

The driver told Viteri he is still struggling to put the experience behind him.

He said one of the men hit him in the head with the gun before taking the car, which still had his child's car seat inside.

Chafee said police have seen cases where people target deliver drivers by calling them to abandoned homes but that's not what happened in this case.

Police worked to identify the two men who the driver described as young, possibly teens.
