NC: Pizza delivery woman thwarts armed robbery by pulling her own gun

A pizza delivery woman thwarted an armed robbery attempt at a house off Rosehill Road on Thursday by producing a weapon of her own, Fayetteville police said.

Ashley Marie Hurd, 26, a driver for Domino's Pizza, took the order to a house on the 200 block of Stuart Avenue about 10 p.m., a police report said.

When she arrived, a man was standing outside, and she told him how much the bill was, said Lt. Todd Joyce, Fayetteville police spokesman.

As she was doing so, Joyce said, a second man, wearing a dark-colored jacket, came around from the side of the house.

The man put something to the back of Hurd's head and demanded money, Joyce said.

"Unbeknownst to them, she had a weapon," Joyce said. "She pulled out a gun, and when she did, the suspects fled and they didn't get anything."


  1. I love Domino;s thin crust pizza, but I bet she was fired.......................

  2. Unfortunately, based on Domino's history, this young woman will soon be looking for other employment...
    I hope this story is well followed and a more appreciative employer takes notice.
