2 charged in four-pizza armed robbery

Two suspects have been identified in a knife-point robbery that netted four pizzas and nothing else.

Manuel Torres, 21, has been charged with first-degree robbery and conspiracy to commit first-degree robbery for the Jan. 29 heist in the area of 1800 W. Gardner Ave.

A 16-year-old girl is charged as a juvenile.

The two are accused of stealing four pizzas from a Domino's Pizza delivery driver after the girl ordered five pizzas. Spokane police believe Torres threatened the man with a knife and grabbed the top pizza bag containing four pizzas.

The girl had placed the order from her mother's cellphone. Her mother identified her to police as having her phone that night. The victim and other witnesses identified the girl and Torres from photo montages.
