The incident happened at Happy’s Pizza at the intersection of E. State Blvd. and Hobson Road around 11:45 p.m.

According to the police report, only one employee was in the store at the time of the robbery. The employee reported he was in the back of the store when he heard the bell on the front door ring. The employee walked to the front of the store where he was confronted with a black man standing behind the counter, pointing a handgun at him. The employee described the suspect as a man in his late teens, wearing a black hoodie and fabric that covered his face. The employee also reported another black male teenager, possibly 14 or 15, wearing a blue hoodie was standing near the front door, holding a smaller handgun.

The employee said the suspect demanded he open the register after asking where the money was. The suspect handed his gun to the teenager by the front door and then began to take the money out of the register. The suspect then stuffed the money into his hoodie pocket. At this point, a car pulled up in the parking lot of the store, and both suspects ran East through the parking lot.

It is not clear how much money the suspects had stolen. Officers, including a K9, searched the area surrounding the restaurant. No arrests have been made this time and the investigation is ongoing.
