Police are stepping up their efforts to catch the two men who robbed and shot a Domino's Pizza delivery driver last week in Minneapolis.

The 19-year-old victim was shot while attempting to deliver pizza on the 700 block of 14th Street East just after 10 p.m. on April 6. 

It's believed that he tried to run from his attackers when he was shot and then robbed. The bullet grazed his head and as of last weekend he was in satisfactory condition, the Pioneer Press said.

Domino's and Crime Stoppers of Minnesota are offering an enhanced reward of $10,000 to anyone who provides information leading to the arrest of the two men. 

Information and confidential tips can be submitted by calling 1-800-222-8477 or via www.crimestoppersmn.org.

Domino's delivery workers have been shot in attacks on a number of occasions around the country, including recent shootings in Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Memphis. 

Fifteen pizza delivery drivers were robbed in the span of two months in Virginia earlier this year, according to the Newport News.
