Menlo Park: Applewood Pizza robbed at gunpoint

A man wearing a black mask robbed Applewood To Go pizza restaurant at gunpoint around 9:45 p.m. Wednesday, July 30, police said.

As two employees were closing the business at 989 El Camino Real and counting cash for the day, the man ordered the employees to the floor at gunpoint, stole about $1,000 in cash, and fled, Menlo Park police said.

Police are investigating.
