EVERETT, Wash. -- Police are looking for a man suspected of robbing an Everett Papa Murphy's, possibly at gunpoint, earlier this month.

According to the Everett Police Department, the man entered the restaurant in the 11000 block of 19th Avenue Southeast around 8 p.m. Nov. 5 with a white towel in one hand and a clear plastic glove on the other.

The man reportedly asked the female cashier for change for a dollar before demanding all the money in the register.

According to police, the man put his hand in his pocket and pointed with what the employee believes was an unseen gun.

The employee backed away from the man and called 911 while the man grabbed the register and threw it to the ground, causing it to open, according to police.

According to police, the man grabbed the cash and ran off.

The same Papa Murphy's was burglarized Nov. 10 when two men smashed its front window. According to police, it is unknown if the incidents are related.

What is known is that it's getting hard out there for your neighborhood chain pizza places. Last month, an apparent Wazzu fan robbed a Bremerton Little Caesars at gunpoint.
