WATERVILLE — Police Monday continued to investigate the Sunday robbery of Little Caesars Pizza shop at 371 Main St.

“It’s an active investigation. We have a number of leads we’re following up on,” Deputy police Chief Charles Rumsey said Monday afternoon.

Rumsey said Monday that three employees were working in the shop at the time of the robbery.

He said police are considering the possibility the robber may have fled in a vehicle he had left nearby, or someone else may have been waiting for him in a vehicle, he said.

The man gave an employee a note around 1 p.m. Sunday demanding cash. He didn’t show a weapon, but the cashier felt threatened, Rumsey said.

He was described as about 5 feet, 8 inches tall with dark hair, possibly in his 20s. At the time of the robbery he was wearing a dark green T-shirt with a logo, a bandanna on his head and sunglasses.

He left the shop with a small amount of cash and ran toward Industrial Road behind the shop, which is near Friendly’s restuarant.

Rumsey recommended that employees remain calm if they find themselves in a similar situation.

“The most important thing for people to do, I think, is to follow their employer’s guidelines because most businesses have guidelines that say if a robbery occurs, that’s what you’re supposed to do,” he said.

Rumsey said if someone demands money, an employee should comply because robberies can be dangerous.

The Little Caesars shop opened for business during the winter.

Police are seeking tips identifying the man in the surveillance photo that was release Sunday and asked that anyone who recognizes him to contact police at 680-4700.
