Three teenagers allegedly robbed a pizza deliveryman of $120 and the pepperoni pizza they ordered just minutes before in the Back of the Yards neighborhood.

As soon as the Papa T’s Pizza employee brought the pizza to 18-year-old Isaac Enciso Monday night, Enciso lifted his shirt and displayed the handle of a gun jutting out from his waistband, Cook County prosecutors said.

Enciso allegedly first demanded the pizza.

Then, he asked the 41-year-old deliveryman to give all his money, Assistant State’s Attorney Amanda Pillsbury said.

Enciso took the cash and his cohort, 17-year-old Abner Vega, of the 4900 block of South Paulina, took the pizza, authorities said.

Chavez Norwood, another teen who was acting as a lookout in a nearby gangway, held a gate open so they could make a quick getaway into a nearby alley, Pillsbury said.

But the deliveryman got a good look at his attackers and within minutes, all three teenagers were arrested.

Norwood, 16, was arrested with the weapon — a loaded .32 caliber Rossi Revolver, Pillbury said.

Enciso, of the 4800 block of South Wolcott, allegedly told police he took the pizza but not the money.

All three teenagers were charged with armed robbery. Enciso and Norwood, of the 5300 block of South Damen, were also charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon.

All three were ordered held in lieu of $250,000 bail Tuesday.
