Domino’s Pizza delivery man catches robber through chance meeting

A Domino’s Pizza delivery man caught the thief who robbed him at knifepoint after calling into the nearest house to ask for help, which happened to belong to the thief’s mother.

Muhammad Zar was delivering pizzas in Glasgow when 30-year-old William McManus and another man robbed the Domino’s worker of the pizza he was delivering, mobile phone, money and vehicle keys leaving him stranded.

Knife brandishing McManus told the pizza delivery man to walk to the end of the road and turn right, but afraid this was a trap, Zar turned left instead, and knocked on the door of the first house he saw with a light on.

Unbeknown to Zar, the door was opened by the mother of his attacker. McManus also lives at the property along with his brother, and so a few minutes later while Zar was using the house telephone to call for help, McManus walked in.

Immediately recognising the man using the telephone as the pizza delivery man he’d just robbed, McManus made a run for it. However the police were then called, and the 30-year-old thief was later caught by the authorities.

Initially McManus denied any involvement in the pizza robbery, however later under questioning, he admitted he had been involved in the attack.

The case came to court this week, however sentencing has been deferred pending reports. McManus has been granted bail.
