Provo police were looking Friday afternoon for a knife-wielding robbery suspect who got away with receipts from a Pizza Hut employee.

Provo police Sgt. Brandon Post said the male employee was walking the night deposit cash from the Pizza Hut at 1523 N. Canyon Road to a nearby Wells Fargo branch about 10:20 a.m. Friday when the suspect confronted him.

Holding a green-handled kitchen knife, the suspect demanded the money. He warned the employee, “Don’t make me ask twice.” The employee handed over the red bank deposit bags and the suspect fled on foot into the nearby Riverview Apartments complex.

The employee called 911 and officers arrived within minutes, Post said, but officers could not locate the suspect.

The robber was described as 5-foot-10 with a thin build. He had wrapped a blue shirt around his head and was wearing sunglasses, Post said.

Provo police ask that anyone with information on this case call the department at 801-852-6210 or call detectives directly at 801-852-7292.
