East Broadway Domino’s robbed at gunpoint
By Wes Wade | (email@example.com)
Police are looking for a man who walked into Domino’s on East Broadway Avenue in Maryville Wednesday night, displayed a gun and demanded money.
Domino’s supervisor Erich Curtis said the suspect fled with a very small amount of money, as the business’ safety policy prevents large amounts of cash from being kept in the store.
“He got very, very little,” Curtis said. “Everybody in our team responded like they should. It went as well as something like this can go.”
Maryville Police Chief Tony Crisp said the suspect entered the business, located at 2200 E. Broadway Ave., at around 8:25 p.m. The man was wearing a plaid jacket and white ski mask and was armed with a large, automatic handgun. The suspect was white and about 6 feet tall.
Curtis added that the man was wearing glasses and appeared to have red hair.
The Blount County Sheriff’s Office was assisting Maryville Police in performing a K-9 track Wednesday night. Chief Crisp said the suspect fled on foot heading east.
Authorities said it is too early to say whether this robbery was related to the Jan. 2 robbery of the Krystal on Whitecrest Drive.
Curtis said Domino’s is offering a reward to anyone with information leading to the suspect’s arrest.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Maryville Police Crime Hotline at 865-380-1380.
