People are taking precautions.
The owner of one pizzeria has decided to have two workers in each delivery vehicle.
"This is terrible for the community," said Carlos Salguero who owns Russo's Pizza. "Not only for the delivery people, for all of the people who living here. We got to continue work because we need to make a living."
Police say there have been about a half-dozen of these robberies in a month and a half.
