Dalton police arrested three suspects after a pizza delivery driver was robbed at knifepoint Tuesday night on Commerce Drive.

Joshua Garcia, 18, and Jonathon Paul Galbraith, 19, were arrested and charged with armed robbery and aggravated assault. 

A 14-year old juvenile suspect was also arrested in the case.

Shortly after 11 p.m. on Tuesday, an order was placed for a pizza to be delivered to an apartment at 500 Commerce Drive.

When the victim arrived to deliver the pizza, he was met in the parking lot by the three suspects.

Garcia told the driver that he had forgotten his wallet inside his apartment, according to reports.  The suspect went and knocked on an apartment door, and then came back saying that he'd locked his keys inside. 

When the victim turned around to get the pizzas off of the roof of his car to leave, Gilreath grabbed the victim from behind and told him that he had a knife, according to reports.

The victim told police he struggled briefly but then stopped when he felt the point of a blade at his throat.

According to reports, Garcia stole $70 and the three suspects fled heading east on Underwood Street. 

Officers found the suspects hiding at Park Place apartments near the incident location.  Officers found a knife matching the description of the knife used in the robbery and also a pizza warming bag with the pizzas inside.
