A Pascagoula man is behind bars, charged with robbing and sexually assaulting a pizza delivery woman. The attack happened Friday night just before midnight.

Investigators say a man called a local restaurant and ordered several pizzas. When the delivery woman arrived and got out of her car, the assailant was waiting with a knife. The woman said he dragged her behind an apartment complex, took the pizza, her cash and her car keys, then sexually assaulted her.

The victim was able to describe her attacker, and along with tips from others in the area, officers made an arrest within three hours of the attack.

Michael Tyrone Moore Jr., 27, is charged with Armed Robbery, Kidnapping and Sexual Battery. Saturday, he was being held at the Jackson County Adult Detention Center Bond on a $150,000 bond.
