AMHERST, N.Y. -- The manager of a Domino's Pizza store in Amherst was robbed at gunpoint as he left the store at 2 a.m. on Sept. 25.
According to the Buffalo News, as the manager walked to his car he was confronted by a gunman demanding his night-deposit sack, containing about $945, and the store's door and safe keys.
In an unrelated crime, three men robbed a Walnut Creek, Calif., pizza parlor at 11 p.m., as the staff prepared to close.
According to the Contra Coast Times, one of the robbers pointed a gun to the head of the manager of Mary's Pizza Shack and ordered him to let two more robbers in the back door. After the trio locked the store's seven on-duty employees in the walk-in refrigerator, the robbers demanded the manager give them the money in the cash register. The manager then was ordered into the refrigerator with the staff, and the robbers blocked the door with a soda machine.
Using a cell phone, the workers called police, who arrived and moved the soda machine to let them out.
