Two Robbery Suspects Get Cash at 17th and Minnesota Business in Sioux Falls
UPDATE: The two suspects in the robbery of a Toppers Pizza on Minnesota Avenue have been arrested.
“That took place at Topper’s on South Minnesota Avenue,” according to Cyndi Holmquest of the Sioux Falls Police Department.
“Essentially two males came in and asked to exchange some currency. They pulled a gun on one of the clerks. Another delivery driver came in and had seen that go down. Another delivery driver, a third one, came in and called 911. Police responded within three minutes."
"A short time later the two suspects were located. There was evidence that was located near them. They were arrested and lodged for I believe first degree robbery.”
A tag team effort by two suspects on Halloween night is being investigated by Sioux Falls police.
Tuesday night (October 31) police responded to Toppers Pizza on Minnesota Ave on a report of an armed robbery.
"Two subjects entered a nearby business and while one subject distracted the employee, another subject pulled a firearm and demanded money," said Martin Hoffman.
"Some money was taken and the subjects fled the scene, but no one was injured."
The investigation is on-going and Hoffman says there is no danger to the public.
