“Drop the Gun or I’ll Drop You!”

A pregnant pizza driver was being beaten with a rifle by two teens in southwest Atlanta on Wednesday night when a nearby resident, who owned a gun, saw the incident and sprang into action, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

According to police, the driver was delivering a pizza to a home when three people approached her from the rear of the residence. Armed, they demanded her car keys and began beating her with the firearm. Dennis Madaris heard the woman’s screams and went outside with his firearm.

Dennis Madaris told the station he pulled out his weapon and told the suspects, “Drop the gun or I’ll drop you,” according to the station.

That’s when Madaris said the teens ditched the weapon and took off running.

A 16-year-old boy and girl were later arrested in connection with the attack. They were charged with assault, possession of a firearm and attempt to commit robbery, the station reported.

The pregnant woman suffered minor injuries and was taken to a hospital as a precaution.
