Another pizza delivery driver was robbed in South City on Friday night, but this time the cops believe they've nabbed the crooks responsible.

Auntre Moore, a 19-year-old from the 4200 block of Virginia Avenue,  and Christopher Moore, a 28-year-old from the 2000 block of DeSoto Avenue, have been arrested and each charged with robbery and armed criminal action (both felonies).

Here's how it went down, according to the probable cause statement:

On Friday night, a male driver from the Imo's Pizza on South Spring Avenue arrived on the 4200 block of Virginia just before midnight to make a delivery.

That's when the Moores pounced.

Christopher allegedly came at him brandishing a "large kitchen knife," and said he was going to kill him. Auntre started to punch the driver. The pair pinned the pizza man against a building and rifled through his pockets.

Their loot: cash totaling $150, the driver's wallet and cell phone, and the order of pizza, wings and salad.

KMOV reports that a trail of salad lettuce led cops to search the nearby apartment where Auntre Moore lived. Inside the officers found the food order. The cops also found the driver's hat in the downstairs apartment.

Later on, the driver was able to identify the Moores as the guys who robbed him.

The older Moore, Christopher, has priors of tampering, resisting arrest and assault on a law enforcement officer.

The night before this incident, a female driver had been attacked about two miles south on the same street.
