A Daytona Beach man used a stun gun on a Papa John’s deliveryman in a failed attempt to grab his pizzas, police said.

Christopher Collins, 19, faces a charge of armed robbery with a weapon for the Monday night incident, Daytona Beach Police said in an arrest affidavit.

The Papa John’s employee went to deliver two pies to a unit at 525 N. Halifax Avenue that was dark, but Collins eventually met him outside. He asked what the total was, the deliveryman said $26.09, and Collins went back toward the unit before returning seconds later, police said.

Collins then again asked “How much?,” the deliveryman took out a small flashlight to illuminate the receipt, and Collins shocked him in the stomach with a stun gun, according to police.

He tried to grab the pizzas, but the Papa John’s employee forcefully pulled them from Collins, who ran west toward the river, police said.

They said they learned that the same phone number had made pizza orders previously at an apartment at 100 Seabreeze Blvd. As officers stood in the hallway, they heard several people talking inside the apartment, with one saying, “I tried to get the pizza but he wouldn’t give it up,” police said.

They found Collins and his two brothers inside, and after the victim identified Collins as the man who tried to rob him, Collins admitted that he committed the robbery attempt, according to police.

He “stated that he was hungry and was just trying to rob the pizza guy of the pizza,” police reported.

Collins said he threw the stun gun in the river, but police found a stun gun inside the apartment, they said.

It was not immediately known whether Collins has an attorney. He was being held in custody on Wednesday, according to online Volusia County Corrections records.
