January 19, 1995

A pizza deliveryman who was beaten and robbed of $40 Tuesday evening by three youths with baseball bats was in serious but stable condition yesterday at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, police said.

Robert Lee Ghan, 22, of the 7000 block of Baker St. at Fort Meade, suffered a facial fracture, police said. He told police he went to the 1200 block of Severn Station Road shortly before 8 p.m. Tuesday to deliver a pizza for the Pizza Express shop.

As he got out of his car, a youth walked up to him and said, "That's my pizza," police said. Two other youths walked up behind Mr. Ghan and hit him in the head with baseball bats, knocking him out.

When Mr. Ghan regained consciousness, he found the youths had taken the pizza and $40. He then drove back to the pizza shop.

Police said Mr. Ghan's assailants called the pizza shop from a pay phone on Reece Road, then waited for him.
