Armed Robbery

On Wednesday, December 22, 2010, officers from the Martinsburg Police Department responded to Pizza Hut, located at 1309 Old Courthouse Square, Martinsburg WV, in reference to a robbery that had just occurred.  Upon arrival, it was advised that a store employee had opened the business and had been followed in by an unknown black male.  The employee then told the male that they were not to be in the business as it was not yet opening time.  At that time, the male demanded money from the employee, who complied and provided an undisclosed amount of currency.  The male also advised that he had a firearm, although none were displayed.  The male then proceeded to exit the business via a backdoor and left in an unknown direction. 

The male is described as a dark skinned black male, 6’0 tall, late 20’s or early 30’s and having scruffy facial hair.  The suspect was wearing a dark knit hat, black gloves and a blue jacket. 

Anyone with information regarding this incident are urged to contact the Martinsburg Police Department at 304-264-2100.
