Mom’s Pizza robbed at gunpoint

NEW CASTLE — New Castle police say they have a suspect in an armed robbery Tuesday night at Mom’s Pizza.

A clerk at the eatery at 1700 Highland Ave. summoned police around 8 p.m., saying a man entered the shop with a gun and stole about $150.

She said the man entered through the back of the store, which was unlocked. He approached the register and told her to open it, and he placed a gun to her back and pushed it into her spine, she told officers. He then helped himself to the cash from the drawer and ran out the same door.

Charges are pending against the suspect, according to police chief Bobby Salem.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 fell from the sky in Donetsk, Ukraine, on Thursday, killing all 298 people aboard. Many are speculating that Russian rebels (supported by Vladimir Putin) are responsible for downing the aircraft. What do you think?

Yes. All evidence points that way.
No. Everyone is so quick to point fingers, but there's not enough evidence to support claims of Russian guilt.
I'm not sure. I'll just wait until the investigation is over to make up my mind.
What is up with these Malaysian Airlines planes? I know one airline I won't be flying any time soon...
