A pizza parlor and liquor store were robbed within 30 minutes of each other last night.
At around 9 p.m., a suspect entered Little Ceasar's Pizza at 1254 Davis St. The suspect pointed a handgun at the clerk and demanded the clerk give him money. The clerk cooperated and afterwards, the suspect ran towards Davis Street.
The suspect is described as an adult black man, around 20 to 30 years old, approximately 5 feet 7 inches tall with a large build. He was wearing dark clothing during the time of the robbery.
"The clerk in this robbery used good common sense and cooperated. When victims or witnesses decide to fight back there is no way to anticipate for how a suspect may react," said Lieutenant Randall Brandt said.
