Suspects sought in armed robbery at Pepperoni Post
County police are looking for two men who robbed a Brooklyn Park pizzeria late Saturday night.
The two men entered the Pepperoni Post restaurant in the 5000 block of Ritchie Highway about 11:30 p.m. and ordered a pizza. After taking their order, the clerk, who was the only employee in the restaurant, turned his back on the men and they both approached him, one of them brandishing a handgun, police said.
The men ordered him to empty the cash register. The employee did so, and then was placed in a walk-in refrigerator. The suspects escaped with an undetermined amount of cash, police said.
The first suspect is described as a black male, between the ages of 18 and 23, weighing between 155 and 165 pounds, with a round face and a pencil mustache. He was wearing a yellow and brown paisley shirt, green shorts and a black baseball cap, and was armed.
The second suspect was described as a black male, 18 to 23 years old, 5-feet 6-inches tall and weighing between 135 and 145 pounds. He was wearing a white T-shirt with print shorts and a blue baseball cap. Both were last seen heading north on Ritchie Highway.
