Cleveland Police hunt armed pizza store robber

(Cleveland) - Detectives are searching for the armed robber who held up the Little Caesars Pizza shop near East 73rd and Harvard last month.

An employee was closing up the store when a black male knocked on the window. Believing him to be a customer, the worker let him in. The suspect pulled out a black handgun and said he wasn't going to hurt her but demanded all the money. He fled with about $200.

Investigators say the man was wearing a gray hoodie, black Adidas pants and black shoes. He was approximately 6-foot-4.

Detectives believe its the same man who held up a Dollar General at East 91st and Miles Avenue later that night, pointing the gun at two employees. He got away with $177.

The gun was later found in a wood pile in the rear of a nearby house.

Anyone with information should call Cleveland Police.
