Hammond pizza chain robbed at gunpoint, police say


HAMMOND — A man took $50 from a pizza chain restaurant during an armed robbery late Monday, police said.

Hammond police were dispatched about 10:10 p.m. after a man entered the Little Caesars Pizza in the 6200 block of Hohman Avenue, displayed a black semiautomatic handgun and demanded money, Lt. Steven Kellogg said.

The man ran north from the restaurant, police said. 

He was described as black, about 35 years old, about 6 feet tall and 200 pounds with black pants, black shoes, a white T-shirt with a design on the front, and a red and black striped coat. He also wore a trimmed goatee and had a tattoo on his left forearm, police said.

Kellogg released surveillance images of the suspect Thursday.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Sgt. Michael Ferry at 219-852-2991 or
