SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- Local authorities are urging pizza delivery operations to take extra caution in the wake of two assaults on drivers on successive nights in late July.

According to the Spartanburg Herald, two delivery drivers were assaulted by a single man -- one with a bat, the other with a crowbar -- in order to rob them. Both assaults occurred on the same street.

A report filed with the Spartanburg Public Safety Department stated that at about 11 p.m. July 29, Papa John's driver Arif Aziz Khan, 28, knocked on the door of a Jasmine Street residence. An assailant then came from behind a house, struck him with a baseball bat, demanded Khan's cash and left.

At 10:30 p.m. the next evening, 32-year-old William Reeves, who delivers for Pizza Hut, attempted a delivery at a Jasmine Street home where no one answered. An assailant armed with a crowbar struck him on the head and back and demanded money, according to a police report. Reeves then threw his pizza boxes at the attacker and ran to his vehicle before being taken to Mary Black Memorial Hospital.
