Spokane Police are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a man who robbed Pizza Rita about 9:30 p.m. Thursday.

Authorities describe the armed man as 18 to 20 years old and wearing baggy clothing, a ski mask and black gloves. He left the business at 5511 N. Wall St. with an undisclosed amount of cash, police said.

Officers arrived two minutes after the robbery was reported, said Spokane Police Officer Dave Daddato. Authorities attempted to track the suspect using a police dog, but the trail ended in an alley where police think the suspect fled in a vehicle.

No one was hurt during the robbery, police said.
