The attackers were described as two teenage girls and a teenage boy.

A 21-year-old Domino’s pizza driver was attacked and beaten while trying to make a delivery Tuesday.

It is thought the attackers were two teenage girls.

Dover Police Department spokesman Master Cpl. Mark Hoffman said the attack happened at about 8:15 p.m. Oct. 25 as the driver tried to make a delivery to an apartment in the Mapleton Square complex.

When the apartment resident told the driver he hadn’t ordered a pizza, she went back to her vehicle to check the address. While there, she was attacked from behind by the two girls, who punched and kicked her in the head and chest.

A man then came up and told the woman to be quiet and hand over her money, Hoffman said. Instead, the driver began screaming for help, causing the three to grab the food and run away.

The two attackers were described as black females, both between 5 foot 7 and 5 foot 9 inches tall, about 15 to 18 years old and weighing about 200 pounds. One was wearing a yellow winter coat with a hood and dark jeans.

The other wore her hair in a ponytail and was wearing a red jacket, blue skinny jeans and mid-calf leather boots.

The third suspect is a black male standing between 5 feet 11 inches and 6 feet 1 inch tall, about 15 to 18 years of age and weighing between 170 and 180 pounds. He was wearing a light gray zip-up hooded sweatshirt and dark jeans,
