A man brandished a knife as he tried to rob Frankfort Pizza Saturday night
Ross County Sheriff George Lavender reports that his office responded to 33 Main Street in Frankfort Saturday at 9:42pm in reference to an Attempted Robbery at Frankfort Pizza.
Deputies arrived on the scene and spoke to witnesses who were present at the time. Witnesses stated that a white male approximately 5’11" that appeared to be in his late forties or early fifties walked into the restaurant up to the front counter and showed a silver, fixed blade knife and told the employee to open the cash register. Witnesses then said that the commotion caused seemed to frighten the man and he turned around and left the restaurant.
Witnesses did not see the suspect’s direction of travel when he left or if he was on foot or in a vehicle.
Additional description of the suspect is that he had a thin build, salt and pepper hair, a rough or scruffy looking face and oily hair. The suspect was reported to be wearing blue jeans, dark colored pocket t-shirt, red and blue cap, and was reported to be wearing gloves that covered half of his forearm.
There is no video available of the suspect. Anyone with information should contact The Ross County Sheriff’s Office at (740) 773-1185 or Southern Ohio Crime Stoppers at 773-TIPS or 1-800-222-TIPS
