Armed robbery at Ocoee restaurant

by: Zak Kerr Staff Writer/Reporter

Ocoee Police responded to a call about an armed robbery around 9:55 p.m. Dec. 28. The incident occurred at Hungry Howie's Pizza at 201 N. Clarke Road.

Employees said two black male suspects had entered the restaurant with bandannas over their faces. Each suspect had a handgun. One of the suspects pistol-whipped the manager, forced her to the ground and stole the establishment's night deposit bag. The other suspect aimed his gun at the other two employees present, demanded that they get on the floor and stole their wallets.

The suspects had fled before police arrived. The first suspect was described as about 5-foot-8 with a medium build, a silver revolver and a red jacket that might have been a hoodie. He also wore blue jeans and a tan bandanna. The other suspect was around 5-foot-10 and with a large build and a shaved head. He had a black semiautomatic handgun and was wearing a black long-sleeve shirt, khakis, white tennis shoes and a white bandanna.

No video or further information is available at this time.

Anyone with information related to the incident should contact the Ocoee Police Department at 407-905-3160, or Crimeline at 407-423-TIPS.
