Kicker – Weaponized pizza

MYRNA BROWN, HOST: Police are investigating an attempted robbery of a pizza store owner. We say attempted robbery because it was unsuccessful—yeah the owner fought back

The incident occurred around 10:30 p.m. last Friday at Stargate Pizza in Greenwood, Delaware. 

Here’s what happened: A man walked in wielding a machete and demanded money. But the shop owner was having none of it. He took up arms and went after the robber with the closest available weapon—a pizza. 

That’s right, the police report states that the shop owner “threw a pizza at him, causing the suspect to flee.”

The owner was not hurt. 

This might be the first time police have ever put a pepperoni pizza in the evidence locker!
