Pizza and personal belongings were taken from a pizza delivery driver yesterday (Thursday).
The incident happened after the driver found that no one at the given address (the 12800 block of Longleaf Lane) had ordered the pizza.
As the driver left the home around 10:26 p.m., a man displayed a stun gun and stole the pizza, a cellphone and other personal belongings from the driver.
The suspect is described as a black man in his 20s.
More outdoor seating will soon be on the way for &pizza, a fast-casual pizza restaurant that’s known for its oblong-shaped pizzas.
The restaurant, which opened over the summer last year, plans to add roughly 20 seats, a railing perimeter and minor lighting, a company spokesperson told Reston Now.
Currently, &pizza has an outdoor patio section that seats between 25 to 30 people.
County permits indicate a permit to complete the work was processed in mid-November.

Jerry’s Subs and Pizza in North Point Village Center appears to have closed.
The restaurant’s signage was removed late last week.
Jerry’s was located at 1432 North Point Village Center. The Reston location reopened in the center in June after a fire forced the business to close in January.
No other information was immediately available.
The village center has several other vacancies. Great China closed in early September. A building permit indicates a new restaurant is expected to replace the Chinese restaurant.

North Italia, which the company describes as a “modern Italian concept,” will officially open its doors in Reston Town Center on Wednesday (July 31).
Fox Restaurant Concepts — which also brought True Food Kitchen to Mosaic District — is behind th restaurant, which is located at 11898 Market Street.
It takes over space previously occupied by Neyla Mediterranean Bistro.
The menu includes a mix of pastas, pizza and salads. Brunch is available on the weekend.
The manager of the Reston location said reopening took some time because of construction and replacements required for kitchen hoods.
“We’re excited to be open. Business has been good so far,” the manager told Reston Now.
The fast-casual cheesesteak, sub sandwich and pizza franchise has more than two dozen locations in Maryland, Virginia and Delaware, according to its website.

Pupatella, an award-winning Neopolitan pizzeria, is coming to Reston in early 2020, according to a company news release.
The 2,700-square-foot restaurant will be located at 1821 Wiehle Avenue. It will also include a patio for outdoor dining.
The news comes as the business eyes major expansion. Another new location will open in Arlington this summer. More openings could be on the way in the District and Montgomery County.
“As a native Restonian, I know all the wonderful things Reston has to offer, but one thing that has been missing is authentic Neapolitan pizza. I couldn’t be more thrilled to bring Pupatella to the neighborhood,” said founding partner and head of real estate and supply chain, Michael Berger.
Enzo and Anastasiya Algarme started Pupatella as a food truck in 2007. The business has been named a top pizzeria, with recognition from The Today Show, The Washington Post, USA Today and the Washingtonian.
The location is currently home to Pizza Hut, which will remain open through the end of its lease, according to Eater.
