In Alexandria, armed robber comes back for seconds

Another armed robbery was reported at Papa Murphy's in Alexandria at about 9 p.m. last Thursday, February 25.

It's the second time the take-and-bake pizza place at 1405 Broadway has been held up in eight days.

The suspect was reportedly wearing the same mask from the movie, Scream, that was used as a disguise in the earlier incident on February 17, which also occurred at about 9 p.m.

The suspect, a white male in his late teens to early 20s, again flashed a handgun, took an undisclosed amount of cash and fled the scene on foot. No injuries were reported.

Authorities conducted a search of the area and brought in a K-9 unit but didn't find the suspect.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Alexandria Police Department at (320) 763-6631.
