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.
