A pizza-delivery man was robbed at gunpoint Saturday night by two men hiding in the bushes as he made a delivery in Uniondale, Nassau County police said.

Police said the victim, a 33-year-old delivery driver for Papa John's Pizza on Hempstead Turnpike in Uniondale, was attempting to deliver a pizza to a Rhodes Avenue home shortly before 11 p.m. when two men approached him from some nearby bushes.

The men demanded money from the driver, and one of the men pointed a black handgun at him, police said.
