Wichita police on Sunday were investigating the aggravated robbery of a Little Caesars Pizza at 1353 S. Webb.

Shortly after 10:15 p.m. on Saturday, police were called to the store, where employees told police a robber carrying a black handgun entered the business through an unlocked rear door. He demanded money and took an undetermined amount of cash, according to Sgt. Bart Brunscheen, spokesman for the Wichita Police Department.

The robber then fled through the back door. Employees are unsure if he was on foot or had a vehicle.

Police are searching for a black male, approximately 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighing 170 pounds. At the time of the robbery he was wearing a black jacket, a blue hooded sweat shirt, a black ski mask, black sunglasses, black pants and black shoes.

A police lab was called to the scene and collected evidence, Brunscheen said.

Police were unable to find anybody within the immediate area matching the robber’s description.

Brunscheen said he would encourage all businesses, especially if they are open late at night, to always lock the business’s rear door.
