Man attacked, robbed by young women in Daytona Beach

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - A Pizza Hut employee was beaten and robbed by three women when he arrived to deliver a $40 pizza order to a residence in Daytona Beach.

Christopher Gantous, 23, a lance corporal in the U.S. Marines, was uninjured after being struck in the head and face by three women, all of whom he said weighed 120 pounds or less, according to the Daytona Beach Police Department report.

After arriving at the home, Gantous was asked by one of the three women if he had change for a $100 bill, according to police. Gantous said he did not and placed the pizza down, according to the report.
