Masked Man Attempts Papa John's Robbery, Fails

The attempted robbery occurred early Friday morning at the State Road Papa John's Pizza in Cuyahoga Falls.

At about 12:20 a.m. Friday morning, a masked man attempted to rob Papa John's Pizza; however, the business — located at 1630 State Rd. — was already locked up for the night. 

Cuyahoga Falls police reported the man ran up to the pizza parlor, pulled on the bolted front door, panicked and ran northbound on State Road. 

A Papa Jonn's employee witnessed the incident and said the man appeared to be white, judging by the skin that could be seen through the eyeholes of the ski mask, according to police radio traffic. 

The man was also dressed in dark clothing and appeared to be about 6 feet tall. 

It was unclear whether the man was armed; and as of April 17, police were still on the hunt for the suspect.

Several robberies have been reported recently at State Road pizza parlors, including Hungry Howie's, Little Caesars and Pizza Hut.

I just don't get why anyone would want to rob the pizza man! He, or she, brings wonderfully good food right to the front door, enriching our lives with lots of melted chewy cheese and toppings over a fine bread crust. What could anyone possibly see wrong with that? Pizza delivered, or dine in is quite possibly on of the finest feasts of happiness the world knows! Hey criminals, at least pick on someone like a tax collecto. The pizza man is a friend to all man kind! He's like the beer man. No one ever robs the guy that delivers beer to a store or drive through because he brings the finest of nectars to make everyone's lives a little better. The pizza man is the same.........duh! Lol! Glad they followed security rules and locked the front door after closing! Good job manager in charge!
