Police look for link in 2 recent robberies at pizza shop

County detectives are trying to determine if there is a link between two recent robberies of a Brooklyn Park pizza parlor.

Investigators say bandits who held up the Pepperoni Post late Thursday and on July 24 ordered the clerks into a walk-in freezer but did not lock the door.

In Thursday's holdup, the gunman walked into the restaurant in the 5000 block of Ritchie Highway at 9:30 p.m. and told the two employees to lie on the floor.

He opened the cash register and took the money before ordering the employees into the freezer. The clerks waited a few minutes, then left the freezer and called police.

The gunman was described as a black man in his 20s, 5 feet 8 inches tall and 140 pounds. He was wearing a Yankees baseball cap, a blue and white striped shirt with yellow shorts.

In the July 24 holdup, two men, one armed with an automatic handgun, walked into the restaurant at 11:20 p.m. and ordered the employees into the freezer. When the employees came out, the robbers had left with the money.

The gunman in that incident was described as a black man, in his late teens or early 20s, 155 to 165 pounds. He had a mustache and was wearing a yellow and brown paisley shirt, green shorts and a black baseball hat.

The man with him was also described as black, in his late teens and early 20s, 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing 135 to 145 pounds. He was wearing black shorts and a blue baseball cap.
