SALT LAKE CITY -- Police are looking for several people who they say robbed a pizza restaurant Saturday afternoon.

According to the Unified Police Department, a woman walked into a Papa John's at 3300 S. 753 East around 11 a.m. wearing a black ski mask and demanded money. The suspect motioned to the employees she had a gun in her coat but never revealed a weapon.

After employees handed over the money, she got into a waiting car and took off with a male driver.

Police said they received a call several minutes later from someone reporting a possible drug deal nearby on 900 East. When officers arrived, they found the suspects' abandoned car. A witness told officers the suspects got into another car, a white Chevy pickup, and drove off. The witness did manage to get the license plate number, and that car turned out to be stolen.

Police got a tip the pickup might be at a location in the Avenues, but when they got there the reported car ended up being the wrong one.

Police said the suspects may have been involved in the robberies of a Pizza Hut, a 7-Eleven and a Little Caesars Pizza earlier this week. They have identified the suspects in that robbery as Victor Hall and Charles Shaver.
