NEW ORLEANS – A pizza delivery driver was severely beaten with a baseball bat while making a delivery Tuesday morning in the former B.W. Cooper housing project, according to the NOPD.
The driver got out of the car in the 1300 block of South Prieur Street around 2 a.m. After asking a man waiting outside if he placed the order, the driver was beaten with a baseball bat. Nothing was taken, which has authorities wondering if the incident was a pizza delivery version of the ‘knockout game.’
The victim had to have staples put into his head and Domino’s has said it won’t deliver to that area for the time being. They said they would re-evaluate if an arrest is made.
