Little Caesars Robbery Suspect Arrested

by Wes Mayer

A man suspected of attempting to rob a Newnan pizza restaurant on Sunday fled the scene after an alarm was sounded.

The suspect was apprehended by Newnan Police officers a short time later.

At 10:12 p.m., officers with the Newnan Police Department responded to Little Caesars Pizza at 48 Bullsboro Drive in reference to an armed robbery. By the time they arrived, the suspect already fled the area, but there were numerous witnesses at the scene.

After speaking to witnesses, officers were able to obtain a description of the suspect who allegedly waved a handgun around in the store and demanded money from the register. Officers learned the suspect fled behind the nearby Kroger grocery without any money, and officers quickly located and apprehended a man in the area of Jefferson Street and Greison Trail.
