A man suspected of robbing more than a dozen pizza and sandwich shops in Pierce County struck again Tuesday night.
Tacoma police report the man robbed the Little Caesars Pizza, 630 S. Sprague Ave., about 5:20 p.m. The robber wielded a gun during the heist, police spokesman Mark Fulghum said. No injuries were reported.
The suspect was described as white, 25 to 30 and 5 feet 10 with a thin-to-medium build. He wore a gray hooded sweatshirt, black baseball hat and dark-colored pants.
The robbery came hours after Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers released surveillance images of the man, who’s believed to be responsible for 13 hold-ups in Tacoma, Puyallup, South Hill and University Place since Oct. 17. The robberies have targeted at Little Caesars Pizza, Papa Murphy’s Pizza and Subway sandwich shops.
In each case, the man displays a handgun and demands cash before fleeing the restaurant.
Witnesses have described him as white, 20 to 30 years old with a slender build. The suspect usually wears a hat and hooded sweatshirt, concealing his face.
Crime Stoppers is offering up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest and charges filed in the case. Tipsters may remain anonymous.
