    The 17-year-old accused of attacking a pizza delivery driver will be charged as an adult, the Contra Costa County District Attorney's office announced Tuesday.

    Darrion Miles, an Antioch resident, was charged by the district attorney's office and is scheduled to appear in Martinez court for arraignment on Wednesday, district attorney's officials said.

    The Domino's driver told police the suspect approached her with a gun as she was making a delivery in Antioch on Sunday. She said the teen ordered her to drive to another location where he sexually assaulted her.

    Police said Miles then made the 22-year-old victim drive him back, robbed her and took off.

    "We are shocked and horrified by what happened," Domino's vice president of communications Tim McIntyre said in an email early Monday morning. "We couldn't conceive of something like this happening, especially on a Sunday morning."

    McIntyre said his company stands behind the driver.

    "We will be working with the franchise owner to provide the victim with whatever kind of support she needs," he said in his email. "It is unthinkable that something like this could happen to an innocent woman, simply trying to earning a living. We hope the person who committed this heinous crime is prosecuted and punished to the fullest extent of the law."

    The Contra Costa County District Attorney's office plans to charge miles with eight felonies: kidnap for the purpose of committing rape, kidnapping for the purpose of committing robbery, forcible rape, forcible sodomy, forcible oral copulation, forcible digital penetration, second degree robbery and terrorist threats.

    Officials said there is no indication Miles knew the victim prior to the attack.
