Stevens Point police say they’re investigating a robbery at Little Caesars Pizza which left one employee sprayed with pepper spray.
Police say shortly before 1 AM on Monday, June 8, the employee was leaving the Church Street store after closing when they were approached by a single person wearing a mask. The employee was immediately sprayed in the face with pepper spray and slammed against a wall.
The suspect then took two bank bags containing an undisclosed amount of cash and receipts.
