Papa John’s Robbed By Hatchet Wielding Man

PappaJohnsAt around 8pm on Thursday, the Papa john’s on Balmoral and Broadway was robbed by a hatchet wielding man. According to witnesses on the scene, the workers quickly ran out of the building and when the robber tried to escape out the front door, local bystanders and Papa John’s employees barricaded the door so he could not exit. The unknown man quickly looked for another route and ran out the back door of the building. He then fled the scene running East on Balmoral.

Police quickly responded but unfortunately just missed the man. There were squad cars all over the neighborhood combing through streets and alleyways. At this time it is unknown if they caught the suspect and if he made out with any cash. There were no reports of injuries.

We will report here if we hear any more information.
