Two robbers hit three pizza restaurants Sunday night, pointing a handgun at employees and forcing them to hand over cash from registers and safes, police said.
Tulsa Police Sgt. Dave Walker said the men robbed Domino’s Pizza at 2604 S. Harvard Ave. about 9:15 p.m., Papa John’s at 5111 S. Harvard Ave. about 10:15 p.m. and Pizza Hut at 7121 S. Memorial Dr. about 10:45 p.m.
In all three of the armed robberies, the robbers entered the store and “politely” forced an employee to open a register and a safe, Walker said.
At Papa John’s, police said a man came in the back door, robbed the restaurant and left with money, but then another robber came in the front and also demanded money.
Walker said the employee told the man he can’t rob them because they were just robbed.
The two suspects were described as black males, about 5 feet 9 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall.
One weighed about 180 pounds, and the other weighed about 200 pounds, Walker said.
The men changed clothes between robberies, but one wore a tan jacket and the other had a gray hooded sweatshirt with a skull printed on the front, he said.
