Men rob Lawrenceville pizzeria
•LAWRENCEVILLE - Two men robbed the Buck's Pizza restaurant Thursday at 850 Dogwood Road in Lawrenceville.
A manager and a cook were working when two men came into the restaurant at 9:35 p.m. and held them at gunpoint. The suspects stuck the gun in the cook's face and forced him to open up the cash register, according to a police report. Witnesses said the robbers fled through the woods behind the store and ran toward a construction area on Ronald Reagan Parkway.
The robbers are described as white men between 18 to 24 years of age wearing dark sweatshirts with the hoods drawn tightly over their heads and gloves.
Police were questioning one suspect in connection with the robbery, the report said.
