MOUNT LEBANON, Pa. —
Police are looking for an armed man who robbed a pizza shop early Sunday morning in Mt. Lebanon.
Authorities said a female manager was closing the Vocelli Pizza on Washington Road for the night when an armed man walked in and demanded money.
According to police, the man said, “Give me the money and there will be no problems.”
“I was absolutely shocked. We’ve only been here a short while and you’d never expect it out here. Now we’re all a little frightened,” Vocelli General Manager Michael Kuttler said.
Investigators told Channel 11’s Jodine Costanzo that they believe the man was casing the restaurant before the robbery.
“The delivery driver was taking out the trash prior to leaving for the night and he noticed a male was lurking around the area,” Mt. Lebanon police Lt. Aaron Lauth said.
No injuries were reported during the robbery, and police haven’t said how much money the man got away with.
Lauth said this type of armed robbery in Mt. Lebanon is rare, so police have put local businesses on alert.
“Keep an eye on things around closing time when some of these might occur. Surveillance video if obviously important,” Lauth said.
Police said they’ve questioned witnesses and are looking at surveillance video from nearby businesses, but no arrests have been made.
