Pizza Hut Manager Victim of Second Night Deposit Robbery
Police say the Perry Hall robbery may be related to an incident last April.
Baltimore County police say the incident may be related to a similar robbery last April.
Shortly before 1 a.m. on Sept. 17, the male restaurant manager and female worker attempted to drop off two night deposits outside the bank along the 8800 block of Belair Road, according to the police report.
A man emerged from behind the corner of the bank and stole a night deposit, worth about $250, from the manager. Another man then approached the worker and slapped her. Both suspects then fled toward Verdel Road, the police report states.
The manager was also the victim of a similar robbery on April 23, when a night deposit worth nearly $1,500 was stolen. The suspects in that incident—who matched similar, though vague, descriptions as the suspects in the Pizza Hut robbery—approached the manager in the same location. Weapons were not used in either robbery.
"We're not ruling out the possibility that there is a connection between this and the robbery back in April," said Lt. Ron Brooks of the White Marsh police precinct. "Clearly, there are similarities."
Other robberies have also occurred along the 8800 block of Belair Road over the past year.
1st Mariner Bank was robbed on Aug. 29 at gunpoint. Police arrested four men following an ATM robbery at 1st Mariner Bank on March 3. Dominick's Pizza, directly across the street from the former Wachovia bank and 1st Mariner Bank, was robbed at gunpoint by two men on Feb. 1. A Wachovia customer was robbed at gunpoint in the drive-thru ATM on Oct. 27 last year.
