VENTURA : Gunman Robs Pizza Business

April 27, 1993|SARA CATANIA

A lone gunman robbed a Ventura pizza parlor and forced employees into a freezer before fleeing, police said Monday.

The robber entered the Pizza Hut in the 2600 block of East Main Street through a rear door shortly after the restaurant closed at 9 p.m. Sunday, Sgt. Bob Anderson said.

Wielding a semiautomatic handgun, the thief took several hundred dollars from a cash register and safe and then ordered two managers, a cook and a maintenance worker to lie down in a large freezer, Anderson said.

The robber, whose face was covered with a dark handkerchief, told the employees to wait in the freezer as he made off with the cash, Anderson said.
