ASHTABULA — An armed robber got away with an undisclosed amount of cash after brandishing a gun at a clerk in a pizza shop.

The robbery took place shortly after 9 p.m. Wednesday at the Little Caesars Pizza, 1245 W. Prospect Road.

The store’s video surveillance camera caught an image of the robber, a male wearing a dark hoodie, as he pointed what appeared to be a silver semi-automatic handgun at the clerk and demanded money, Ashtabula Police Chief Robert Stell said.

The robber then fled the shop through the back door, he said.

Police detectives are investigating the incident.

The manager of the pizza store refused to comment Friday.
