Two Sacramento Pizza Parlors Robbed in Same Night by Armed Suspects

SACRAMENTO -- Police are investigating two separate armed robberies that happened Saturday night at pizza parlors in Sacramento.

The Sacramento Police Department reports just after 9 p.m., officers were responding to a robbery at Round Table Pizza on Freeport Boulevard when they found a victim inside with a gunshot wound. As of Saturday night, the victim's injuries were non-life threatening. Police have not said whether the victim was an employee or a customer.

The suspects in the robbery and subsequent shooting fled the scene, according to the police department.

Around 30 minutes prior to the robbery in Land Park, Sacramento Police and employees report Mountain Mike's Pizza on Rush River Drive was robbed at gunpoint by two masked suspects.

"I was standing right here, I was waiting for a pizza to come out," said Xenia Inego, who showed FOX40 where she was standing when the two masked men came into the restaurant.

"I was at the place where the pizzas come out, I cut it, so I was kind of facing the other way. And then we have this alarm, that goes off once someone comes in," she said. "And I just heard that and was like, OK a customer came in."

But when she turned around, she realized these were no customers. Both wore masks and hoods.

"And they just had these guns, and my heart sank," she said.

Guns that were pointed at her and her two co-workers.

"Like, I'll never forget that image, it's like always going to be in my mind, and yeah, scary," Inego said.

The robbers took the register money and tried to get into the safe, but none of the employees knew the code, so the robbers left.

No one was injured in the second robbery.

Sacramento Police have not provided descriptions of the suspects from either robbery. Police have not said whether the robberies were connected, but they say it's a possibility.

"We're looking at all aspects of the investigation, possibly if there's a connection, and our investigators will see if there is ant connection," Sacramento police Sgt. Vance Chandler said.

"So just makes me like 'wow, good thing none of us got shot,' you know?" Inego said.

A spokeswoman for Round Table Pizza sent FOX40 a statement, which read in part: “Round Table Pizza is deeply saddened by this horrible event and our heart goes out to our employees and customers involved."
