WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Pizza Hut employees stopped two would-be robbers from taking anything from the business early Tuesday morning.
According to police, two people approached employees working at the Pizza Hut on Oleander Drive, near Independence Mall around 1 a.m. with a gun.
Employees had just finished unloading a delivery truck and saw the suspects approaching. Police say the suspects told workers to stop locking up the business, but the employees didn't listen and went back inside Pizza Hut, locking the door behind them to keep the suspects out.
According to officials, the employees said the two men were wearing blue jeans, black hoodies and were wearing black bandanas over their faces.
Police are now looking for a large, silver four-door sedan in connection to the incident.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
