Gunman sought in Pizza Hut robbery Police release sketch of suspect NORTH LAUREL/SAVAGE

November 23, 1992

County police have released a sketch of a suspect in the armed robbery of a Laurel Pizza Hut earlier this month.

Police believe the same man might be responsible for the Nov. 8 robbery of a McDonald's restaurant in Jessup.

In the Pizza Hut robbery, two men wearing ski masks entered the restaurant in the 9100 block of Maier Road as it was about to close on Nov. 9.

They approached the manager at gunpoint, demanded money from the safe and cash register, and forced several employees into a walk-in refrigerator before fleeing.

The employees escaped after about 15 minutes and called police. There were no injuries.

Police believe one of the men might be responsible for a similar robbery the previous day at the McDonald's in the 8700 block of Washington Blvd. in Jessup.

In that robbery, an armed man wearing a mask approached employees about 12:30 a.m. and demanded money, police said. He ordered employees to a rear office, then fled with the day's receipts, according to police.

The gunman is described as a black male in his 20s, 5 feet 10 inches tall and between 150 and 160 pounds, police said.

The second man is described as a black male, about 5 feet 8 inches tall.

Anyone with information should call the Metro Crime Stoppers hot line at 276-8888.

Callers may remain anonymous. If a tip leads to the arrest and indictment of a suspect, a caller may receive a reward of up to $1,000.
