Domino's Pizza robbed at gunpoint

By Lee Higgins

A man with a handgun robbed Domino's Pizza at 953 Washtenaw Avenue on Monday night, then left the area, Ypsilanti police said.

At 9:10 p.m., the man entered through a side door and ordered everyone to the rear of the store as he demanded money, police said.

He then ordered some employees to the front of the store and stole cash, a police news release said. No one was injured.

The man was described as black, with a medium build and 5 feet, 8 inches tall. He was wearing a red hooded sweatshirt and dark pants.

Anyone with information can call police at (734) 483-9510.

Armed robbery is a murder waiting to happen. I'd like to see the minimum sentence increased considerably.

If they try to rob my business they will receive a free bag upon leaving.

Wow, what a situation! A situation where employees are ordered to a place where anything can be done to them should never be allowed to happen. On the community, state and national levels: a fortune is spent on police and fire protection - everyone agrees on this necessity because of the value we place on human lives and those include ourselves and our families. Yet: private businesses (aka "private enterprises") consciously avoid both the cost of protecting employees and deny the right of employees to protect themselves. The basic attitude (and "wisdom") of Corporate America is to use lawyers to clean up the mess after the employees are murdered and buried. I'm just curious: what would this employer have done after the robber shot and killed one or more of his victims in a company owned (or leased) building? What would the parents or other relatives have done to face the murder of their loved one? Insurance and suit settlements do not replace the human beings who are murdered. Seems to me: some BIG changes are needed in the way of "business attitude" and disregard for human life.

Too close for comfort for me. I live just down the street from here and not too happy about it now. Bring it on robber, this neighborhood is ready for you.

As Detroit gets closer we can expect much more of this type of activity.

A medium build, five foot eight, wearing a sweatshirt, and black. Thanks for that description, Lee. I am sure the community can be on the lookout for such a unique suspect.

One might have the opinion that comparing the description of the criminal provided by witnesses and reported by, that this criminal could be the same criminal that committed most of te crime in the area.
