A pizza delivery man was robbed at gunpoint outside an apartment building in Ellicott City Tuesday night, Howard County police said.

The delivery man for Papa John's pizza, whom police refused to identify, was accosted about 9: 45 p.m. in the 8700 block of Town and Country Blvd. by a white man said to be wearing two trash bags over his body, a white or gray cap and a dark-colored bandanna over his face, a police report said.

The robber, who stood 5 feet 7 inches and weighed 140 pounds, carried what appeared to be a long-barreled rifle or shotgun and demanded money from the delivery man, police said.

After being robbed of an undisclosed amount of cash, the delivery man ran to a nearby building and waited until the robber got into a car to leave, a report said.

No one was hurt in the incident. Police said they are investigating.
