After a Jimmy John’s driver was robbed Monday night at Campus Crossings, the company has released a statement confirming the driver’s safety.

“We’re very glad our driver was okay. This is why our drivers don’t carry a lot of cash with them. We’ve never had an incident like this before,” Will Massie, Jimmy John’s of Statesboro’s general manager, said.

The suspects held the delivery driver at gunpoint. One was wearing a white clown mask and the other a black bandana, according to the Statesboro Police Department news release.

One suspect was armed with a handgun and the other with a shotgun. After demanding the driver’s money and cell phone, the suspects fled on foot.

“He’s a new driver, and we’re just very happy he’s safe,” Massie said.

This robbery is still under investigation by the Statesboro Police Department, and anyone with information regarding this case has been urged to notify investigators.
