WACO (July 11. 2014) Waco police on Friday were searching for a man who forced his way into a local pizza restaurant Thursday night and held it up at gunpoint.

At about 11:20 p.m. Thursday a man forced his way into the back door at the Pizza Hut at 626 N. Valley Mills Drive just as the restaurant was closing.

He ordered all the employees to lie on the floor and took money from the day’s receipts, Waco police Sgt., W. Patrick Swanton said.

The suspect fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash, Swanton said.

No one was injured in the robbery.

A Waco police K-9 unit and the Crime Scene Unit responded to the call to assist patrol officers in their investigation, Swanton said.

The suspect was described as a light-skinned black man in his mid-20s, with a mustache and a mole or birthmark on his left ankle.

Victims said he is about 5-feet, 9-inches tall and weighs about 160 pounds, Swanton said.

He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and had a blue bandana covering his face.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Waco police at 753-help.
