Man robs pizza shop, manager at gunpoint

A man carrying a large automatic handgun robbed a pizza shop in Arnold early Saturday morning, getting away with an undetermined amount of money.

Police said the man walked into PaPa John's in the 1400 block of Ritchie Highway about 1:45 a.m. and ordered the employees to lie on the floor.

He then told the manager, Thomas Roy Russell, 21, to give him money from the cash register.

After he was given a small amount of cash, police said the man demanded more and had Mr. Russell empty his pockets, a cash box and a duffel bag. The robber left the store after forcing the employees to the back of the restaurant.
