A movie stunt man who moonlights as a pizza delivery man in Polk County was robbed at gunpoint Monday night.

It happened right after he dropped off an order at a Winter Haven home.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office said the victim, Anthony Giovanni Elias, never even made it back to his car.

They said two men ran up to him, hit him in the head with a shotgun, and then robbed him.

Elias works as a movie stunt man in Orlando. According to his Facebook page, he is the founder of Genesis: Action/Stunts.

His YouTube page shows a sizzle reel of different action scenes involving Elias.

“I feel bad for the pizza guy, he was just trying to do his job,” said Michael McNair, who Elias was delivering to right before the attack.

“It’s crazy. I’ve got kids in and out of the house. I’ve got kids who are going to be home from school in a little bit. It’s crazy that right outside of your front door this can happen,” he said.

Elias is said to be doing ok, but the armed robbers are no where to be found.

The two suspects are described as black males in their 20s, one 6' tall, with a heavy build, wearing black shorts, a red long sleeved shirt, black shoes, armed with a shotgun; and one 5'7" tall, with an average build, dark complexion, wearing black shorts and a black short-sleeved shirt.
