PORTAGE | Police are investigating the robbery of Little Caesar's Pizza, 6321 Central Ave., late Wednesday night.

According to the police report, a man came into the restaurant just before 10 p.m. After telling an employee he wanted to order several specialty pizzas, he directed her to have any other employees come to the front counter.

When the employees gathered, he demanded they take all the money from the cash registers and put it in a bag.

An employee told police the man yelled "Put all the money in the bag. You have 30 seconds," several times. The employees complied. The suspect then escorted the employees to the bathroom and after asking one how to exit the back door, fled.

He allegedly told the employees, "Give me 30 seconds or I'll come back and kill you."

No weapon was shown or implied during the robbery.

The employees described the suspect as a white male, 6-foot tall, thin build, blue eyes and wearing a hat with a mask covering his mouth and chin area.
