Domino's robbery

The Orange County Sheriff's Office released this image taken from surveillance video of a male suspect in Thursday night's armed robbery at the Domino's Pizza in Locust Grove.

CULPEPER — Employees were held at gunpoint, ordered into a restaurant refrigerator and their lives threatened Thursday night during an armed robbery of Domino’s Pizza in Locust Grove.

The incident occurred around 11:30 p.m., when an armed male, dressed all in black, waited at the back door of the delivery pizza place that services nearby Lake of the Woods, located in the Food Lion shopping center along Route 3.

When the employees opened the back door, the suspect rushed in with a handgun and a knife, according to a news release from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

The employees were held at gunpoint and ordered to give their cellphones and keys to the subject. The suspect demanded money from the employees and made them gather in the refrigerator, the release stated.

Employees were instructed to count to 200 before coming out and he would not kill them, police said. The suspect was dressed in all black from top to bottom, black shoes, pants, shirt (hoodie), mask, sunglasses, gloves and string backpack.

The suspect exited through the back of the store. Orange sheriff’s investigators have been able to determine that the subject fled to an adjacent parking lot.

Employees’ cellphones and keys were located by deputies outside the restaurant. The investigation to this point has revealed that the suspect was seen earlier in the evening in the area, the release stated.

Anyone with information concerning suspicious activity at or around the Goodwin Drive area of Orange County is asked to call the sheriff’s office at (540) 672-1200.
