A man suspected of robbing pizza joints across the South Sound region struck again Monday, this time in Puyallup.
Police said a masked gunman walked into the Pizza Time restaurant in the 300 block of East Pioneer about 11 p.m. and ordered employees into the restroom, where he made them fasten themselves to the stalls using plastic ties.
He gathered about $1,000 in cash from the tills and then gave the employees a pair a scissors so they could free themselves after he left, police said.
The employees cut their bonds in time to see the man hop into a newer, tan, four-door Subaru Legacy, which drove away.
Never miss a local story.
They described the robber as a while man, about 6 feet tall and 200 pounds. He was wearing jeans, a dark gray hooded sweatshirt and a gray ski mask.
Police said the man’s description and actions match those of a bandit suspected of robbing restaurants from Spanaway to Olympia in recent weeks.
Anyone with information on the man’s identity is asked to call Puyallup police at 253-770-3343.
