BP, Little Caesars, Monroe Pharmacy all robbed

Toledo police continue to investigate weekend robberies at three businesses.

Two robberies were reported Sunday about two hours apart.

A clerk at the BP gas station at 95 Main St., reported being robbed by a man with a switchblade at about 8 p.m., according to a Toledo police report.

The employee, Angel Gonzales, told police that a man ran into the store at about 8 p.m. and told the employee, "Give me everything you got before I [expletive] you up," according to a Toledo police report.

The employee backed up, and the suspect said, "Don't touch anything or I'll [expletive] kill you," according to the police report.

The employee opened a register and gave the suspect about $353 in cash; the suspect then fled the store.

The suspect is described as white, 20-25 years old, between 5 feet, 6 inches and 5 feet, 8 inches tall, and 140-150 pounds. He was wearing an orange and black mask. 

Almost two hours later at 9:56 p.m., a West Toledo Little Caesars was robbed, police said.

A man went into the store, at 4302 Lewis Ave., locked the door behind him, and pulled a mask over his face, an employee at the pizzeria told police.

The suspect jumped over the counter and reportedly held a carving knife to the employee's stomach, demanding cash, the report states.

The suspect fled southbound toward Sylvania Avenue after taking cash, police reported.

A witness described the suspect to police as about 5 feet, 8 inches. He was wearing a black mask on his face, black gloves, and black boots. A further suspect description was not provided in the police report.

A robbery was also reported Saturday at Monroe Pharmacy, 4122 Monroe St.

According to a police incident report, a man with a handgun went into the pharmacy at 9:35 a.m. and demanded that an employee give the suspect cash from two registers.

The employee complied and the suspect fled, police said.

No suspect description was available.

No injuries were reported in any of the incidents.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 419-255-1111.
