Update: Police said Friday that they’ve arrested Brian Dozier, 42, of the 7900 block of Fayette St., in connection with the case. He was charged with robbery, possessing an instrument of crime, terroristic threats and related offenses.

Philadelphia Police released surveillance video on Thursday in an attempt to track down the man who robbed a Pizza Hut location in West Oak Lane three days earlier.

According to investigators, the unknown robber walked into the Pizza Hut near Stenton Avenue and Washington Lane around 10:20 p.m. Monday and “handed the employee a demand note that read ‘Give me all the money.'”

The employee then opened the cash register and put the drawer on the counter; the robber then removed an undetermined amount of cash and fled towards Washington Lane, police said.

He is described as a 25-year-old black man with a stocky build who wore a gray T-shirt with red letters reading “AMERICA” on it.

Police ask anyone with information about the robbery to call Northwest Detective Division at (215) 686-3353/54 or the tipsline at (215) 686-TIPS, text a tip to PPD TIP (773847) or send it in via the department’s website.
