All three fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of cash before police arrived on scene.

Two suspects at large after Valentine's pizzeria robbery

Two suspects are still at large after a Valentine’s Day robbery.

According to London Police Service Const. Ken Steeves, one of the three men suspected of robbing Twice the Deal Pizza on Belmont Drive at knifepoint just before 11 p.m. Thursday (Feb. 14) was later apprehended for an unrelated crime.

The 17-year-old was caught around 2:50 a.m. on Friday (Feb. 15) by the owner of a vehicle he was trying to break into. He was detained by the owner until police could arrive to arrest him.

The young offender allegedly had property on him that police determined was taken from another nearby vehicle, according to Steeves. He is charged with robbery, wearing a disguise with intent and possession of property obtained by crime.

None of the charges has been proven in court.

“The description of the outstanding male suspects (of the pizza store robbery) is limited, at this time, as one wearing a black hoody and one wearing a yellow hoody.”

Steeves said it is important to remember to keep valuable items out of plain view to prevent thieves from being tempted to break into their vehicles.

Anyone with information in relation to this incident is asked to call the London Police Service at 519-661-5670 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).  Information can also be sent in online anonymously to
