“Concerning that this was daylight with patrons in the store,” Dormont Police Officer Thomas Maloney said. “He’s getting very bold.”

Police say this robbery was almost identical to one that happened February 19th at the Little Caesars Pizza just two doors down in the same plaza.

In both robberies, the man took the cash and ran towards Mississippi Avenue.

Officers say they’d like to catch the man before his pattern could get more dangerous.

“Is it going to turn to robbing people instead of going into businesses?” Maloney said.

Police say the main difference is the pizza shop was held up at night while the donut shop was held up in the morning.

The suspect is described as a white man between five-feet-five-inches and five-feet-seven-inches tall.

He had a thin build and wore a baseball cap with a hooded sweatshirt. His mouth was covered with a scarf.
