ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (CBS) – Police in Atlantic City are searching for six suspects in connection to the robbery and beating of a pizza delivery driver.

The robbery happened shortly after midnight in the 700 block of North Maryland Avenue.

According to investigators, a 21-year-old delivery driver from Domino’s Pizza knocked on the delivery address and a male suspect answered the door.

While standing at the door, the victim saw five males standing by his delivery car and one of the males had a rifle he described as an “M-16.” The male holding the rifle then racked a round into the chamber of the weapon.
