The alleged Polo Classic had four male occupants of which two approached the driver of the delivery vehicle and demanded money from him at gunpoint. The passenger on the delivery vehicle was hit with the back of the firearm on [the] head before the suspects fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of cash.”
