A pizza delivery driver was apparently assaulted in Ansonia, but doesn't remember anything about the attack.

Gary Menna Sr. was found lying on the ground in a neighborhood on Westfield Avenue.

The incident happened around 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday when Menna was making a pizza delivery to a house on that street. Ansonia police believe he was assaulted as he was walking back to his car.

“Neighbors reported some sort of argument. [It] sounded like two or three people arguing. They reported hearing somebody getting punched or hit,” Said Lt. Andrew Cota.

Lt. Cota said neighbors saw Menna get up and get inside his car. Police arrived on scene and Menna was taken to the hospital. He suffered a head injury and abrasions along his face. Police said Menna did not remember what happened.

“There were reports that there was a black vehicle, black truck with a landscape trailer that was in the area. We’re not sure if it could be a witness or people who were involved inside the truck,” Said Lt. Cota.

“I’m just kind of shocked. Like I said this is a quiet neighborhood,” Said Steven Maurdry.

Nothing was taken from the victim, so police aren't sure why the attack occurred.

“If they’re out there they’re going to do it to somebody else! They’ve got to be caught,” Said Dicky Savoy who works near Westfield Avenue.

Police said they hope to re-interview Menna once he has had some time to recover. They’re hoping he’ll remember something about the suspects.

If you have any information on this incident, you’re asked to call Ansonia police.
