According to police, two men walked in to the Wall Street and Rowan Avenue location around 11 p.m. and showed the cashier a gun and demanded money.

PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE POLICE DEPT: Spokane Police received a robbery call at 11pm Wednesday night (January 9, 2013), from an employee at the Pizza Rita, located at 5511 N. Wall.  

When officers arrived, the suspects had already fled. The two store employees gave limited suspect descriptions; they were not harmed. The employees recounted two suspects came into the store, wearing masks, demanded money and pointed a gun at them. The suspects took the money and fled on foot.

Earlier in the day around 3:30, there was a report of an armed robbery attempt at Hot Toddy's Coffee located at 101 W. Francis. A barista reported that two males pulled up in a maroon colored Nissan or Mazda type vehicle, displayed a handgun and demanded money.
