An elderly man and his wife who were attacked and robbed outside their home in southwest Houston won't have to go out to pick up their weekly pizza. Their weekly date is getting some help. Ralph Mills and his wife were attacked on Monday when they came home with a Papa John's pizza. The thieves grabbed the pie and the attack put Mrs. Mills in the hospital.

Papa John's saw the report on ABC13 and they brought the couple and the nurses free pizza. They're also giving the couple free pizza each week for a year.

Mr. Mills says he has always had a special order for pepperoni pizza for years.

"He comes in every Monday, has been doing it for years and I said, 'We gotta go take care of Mr. Mills'," said Keith Sullins, President of Papa John's Pizza in Houston.

"That surprises me. That's wonderful! I've been telling them how I wanted it since I've been going and it's perfectly delicious," said Mills.

As for the suspects in the attack, they've been caught.
