A pizza delivery woman was kidnapped and raped at gunpoint by a teen customer who was later arrested by Northern California police.

KNTV reports that Antioch police Sgt. Dimitri Barakos said the woman was delivering a Domino's pizza to a home in a San Francisco Bay Area suburb Sunday morning when she was robbed at gunpoint. Police said the teen forced her into the car and directed her to drive to an undisclosed location where she was sexually assaulted.

Domino's spokesman Tim McIntyre said the company is "shocked and horrified by what happened."

The teen was arrested and booked in the county jail. His name was not released because he is a juvenile.

McIntyre said the company will give the employee whatever support she needs. It was not immediately known if she was physically injured.
