Pacifica Pizza Robbed At Knifepoint Friday

No one was injured in the incident, and the suspect is still on the loose.

A man with a knife robbed Pacifica Pizza on Main St. Friday night and got away with an undisclosed amount of money, Martinez police say. No one was injured in the incident, and there were no customers in the store at the time.

According to a release from Martinez police, a white man between 40 and 50 years old, wearing a black and grey hoody and dark pants walked into Pacifica Pizza around 10:45 p.m., drew a knife and demanded money from the employee. After he received the money, he ordered the employee to lie on the ground, and threatened to pepper spray the employee if he didn’t comply. After that, the suspect ran west down Main St.

He was gone by the time officers arrived. If anyone has any information about the incident, please contact Detective Sgt. Glen Walkup at (925) 372-3450.

If he ran West, he ran into a residential neighborhood. (Basically ours.) Our car was stolen (and recovered) last week. There are many of us who are concerned about the increase in crime in this area.

I frequent the pizza place at least once every 12 days or so, and its a shame the store was robbed, but a blessing no one was hurt. Perhaps another way to detour this crime from happening again, is to always have more than 1 employee during the evening, and to install a video camera. drastic? maybe..but in this day and age, drastic measures are needed. Mike, im sorry it happened to you, please continue to make your excellent pizzas, be safe!!
