SWAT team responds to Alaska teens' pizza heist

The suspects barricaded themselves in a house after stealing a pizza

Associated Press

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Police say a plot to steal a delivery man's pizza brought out a SWAT team in Alaska.

Police spokesman Lt. Dave Parker says a man trying to deliver a pizza order Sunday night was confronted outside a northeast Anchorage home by a man with a gun and a stick. He says three other people attacked him from behind, grabbed the pizza but ran away without taking his money.

Police say the delivery man then followed one of the attackers, a girl, to a home where police arrested her. They say the other suspects then barricaded themselves in the home, prompting authorities to call in a SWAT team that entered the property.
