Armed Robbery at D.C. Restaurant Caught on Camera

LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — Police are looking for a man they believe robbed a couple at gunpoint while they were dining at a D.C. restaurant last month.

The couple was seated at the outdoor dining area outside Pizzoli’s Pizzeria in the 1400 block of 12th Street NW at about 9:20 p.m. on Friday, May 17 when a black male approached them with a handgun and robbed them of cash and other valuables, D.C. police said.

Surveillance video taken from the restaurant shows a man in a white shirt and dark shoes approaching the couple as they were sitting at a table on the outdoor patio. At one point, the man pulls out a gun and the couple gives him money.

Police are hoping the video will lead to an arrest of the suspect, who is charged with armed robbery. Anyone with information is asked to contact D.C. police.
