NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) – Police say two armed men robbed a Newport News pizza shop, getting away with cash and credit cards.

Investigators said the two men came into the restaurant through an open back door. One suspect, armed with a silver-colored handgun, went up to a female clerk and demanded “all the money.” Eley said the other suspect held two other employees at knife-point.
