SOUTH ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- Authorities have released the identities of two men arrested in connection to the latest attack on a pizza delivery driver in south St. Louis.

Christopher Moore, 28, and Auntree Moore, 19, face charges of felony robbery and armed criminal action after allegedly attacking and robbing an Imo's Pizza driver in the 4200 block of Virginia on Friday night.

Police say the suspects threatened to slit the driver's throat with a kitchen knife, then took his cash, wallet, cell phone, and the pizza order. The man was stabbed in the neck during the incident, but the injury was said to be minor.

Norman Hendrix, general manager of the Imo's Pizza on Spring, said items found inside an apartment linked the two men to the crime. Hendrix said officers spotted a trail of lettuce leading to the second floor of the apartment building, then found the driver's hat and delivery order inside the suspects' unit.

A female driver for Pizza Milano was attacked by two men on Thursday in the nearby 7100 block of Virginia. Police say the suspects hit her in the face with bricks and knocked her down, but did not steal anything from her.

Last Saturday, a man who works for Cecil Whittaker's was attacked at the same address in the 7100 block of Virgina. Police say the man was knocked unconscious and his car was stolen.

Investigators say they do not think the most recent attack is related to the others, but one official says he believes the suspects could be part of the same group.
