Papa John’s Pizza Robbed In Springfield (HD VIDEO)
Around 8:40PM Tuesday evening a man armed with a handgun entered Papa John’s Pizzeria on Memorial Blvd in Springfield and demanded money, according to Springfield Police.
Police say that after robbing the store the man went around the side and back of the building and robbed two employees. The suspect then escaped with an undisclosed amount of money and fled up the grass hill behind the store towards 17 Ave East.
Springfield police brought in a K-9 unit but we don’t believe the dog picked up much of the suspect scent, perhaps due to the wet weather.
The suspect is described as an African American male in his late teens or early twenties wearing dark clothing and a dark bandana 5’11 to 6 feet tall. The gun is described as a black and silver handgun.
Just a little over an hour earlier in Goodlettsville a very similar robbery occurred at an Auto Zone located on Main St. (location of robbery)
In both cases the suspect was described as wearing a bandana. In the Goodlettsville robbery the suspect was described as wearing all dark clothing with a black bandana possibly fleeing in a silver sedan, according to a BOLO released in Robertson County.
At the moment Goodlettsville police are sharing information with Springfield Police to determine if it is in fact the same suspect.
No one was injured in the Springfield robbery.
This is a breaking story, look for updates but as we understand it at the moment there is no suspect in custody.
