NEW CASTLE — New Castle police are investigating an armed robbery at Little Caesar’s pizza shop.

A clerk pushed the panic alarm around 10:20 p.m. Sunday and reported the shop, at 704 Wilmington Ave., had been robbed at gunpoint.

Store employees told police a man with a black stocking cap pulled over his face had entered the business carrying a gun and a blue plastic bag. He pointed the gun at the cashier and ordered him to take all the money from the register and put it into the bag, the employees told police. He then demanded money from the store manager.

She showed him her wallet was empty and he left the business with an unknown amount of money, they said.

Police said Monday they are continuing to follow leads in the case.
