The investigation revealed that the man went to deliver an order at an apartment complex in the 4100 block of South Seneca.  The driver was unable to contact anyone at the apartment.  As he was walking back to his vehicle, he was approached by Milligan who asked to buy the order.  The driver refused, and Milligan produced a handgun and demanded money and the pizza order from the driver.  The driver left the order on the ground and drove away in his vehicle back to the restaurant to call police.

Officers spotted Milligan at a nearby apartment and arrested him without incident.  Officers later recovered the pizza order as well as a handgun.

The case will be presented to the Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office.
