WATERVILLE — A description was released Monday of the man suspected of robbing a city pizza shop at gunpoint over the weekend as police continued to investigate.

The at-large suspect was described as a young man about 5 feet, 6 inches tall who was wearing jeans, a black hoodie, a ski mask and sunglasses, Deputy Chief Bill Bonney said Monday morning.

Police received a report about 9:30 p.m. Saturday of an armed robbery at Scotty’s Pizza at 47 Water St. The man was reportedly armed with a handgun and escaped the store with an undisclosed amount of cash, Bonney said.

Security cameras at the business did capture images of the suspect, but police aren’t releasing those images because the quality isn’t good enough, Bonney said.

Police worked through the night and “executed a search warrant at a location of interest” a few hours after the incident Saturday night, but did not find the suspect, Bonney said.

Oakland, Fairfield and Winslow police departments also responded to the incident as mutual aid, he said, as well as Maine State Police.

Waterville Police asked anyone with information on the robbery to call the station at 680-4700 and ask for Detective Josh Woods.
