Miami police are looking for two men who robbed a Domino’s pizza parlor in Little Havana at gunpoint.
Officials say two armed men rushed into the pizza store in the 1500 block of Southwest Eighth Street, drew their semi-automatic pistols and demanded money from the employees.
“As both suspects were emptying the register, suspect # 1 stayed in the front of the restaurant and also demanded the cell phones of the employees,” police said in a statement. “Suspect # 2 then went to the back office and approached two other employees which were counting money in the office.”
One demanded the money and pistol-whipped one of the victims twice in the head. As that victim fell to the ground, the other dragged him out of the office and took his cellphone. They commanded the employees to open the safe, but were unsuccessful.
