Two employees closing up after a long night of work at a local pizza restaurant became victims in an armed robbery, leading city investigators to an all-out search for the men responsible.
According to reports from the Clinton Police Department, the employees, identified as 29-year-old and 30-year-old males, were closing up Papa John’s, located at 931 Sunset Ave., just after midnight Tuesday morning when two suspects approached them in the parking lot of the business brandishing guns and demanding money.
The startled employees quickly handed over an undisclosed amount of money, cell phones, keys, credit cards and other items they had in their possession. Neither was injured in the incident.
The suspects were identified as two black males, standing 5 foot 9 inches and 5 foot 10 inches tall, respectively. Both were wearing hoodies over their head.
After the robbery, one of the two victims flagged down an officer patrolling the area and filed the report. As of Tuesday afternoon, the suspects were still on the run.
Investigators are asking for tips to help put the perpetrators behind bars. If you have any information on this incident, call the Clinton Police Department at 910-592-3105. All tips will be kept anonymous.
