WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — New Hanover County Sheriff’s deputies are looking for two men they say robbed an Ogden pizza place at gunpoint overnight.

Deputies say the two black males entered the Domino’s at 6620 Gordon Road with semi-automatic handguns. The suspects robbed the restaurant, then ordered the assistant manager to the back of the store and forced him to lay face down on the floor as they took off.

The men are both described as 18-25 years old, about 5’10”, 150-160 lbs. They were wearing dark-colored hoodies bandanas covering their faces and gloves.

Anyone with information should call the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office at (910) 798-4162.

    First sentence of the second paragraph ……….

    I’m guessing with that description they were probably “two black males”.

    (Now would be a good time for a “Whoops, sorry I missed that” post)

    The robbers had hoods on, bandanas over their face, and gloves over their hands. The only witness was forced face down on the ground. Can you tell what race they are by this picture? If not, then how can the reporter?

  • Guest Vader says:

    Maybe you can’t read so good. If you will read the first sentence of the second paragraph of the story, you will see it mentioned race.

  • howedy says:

    Sorta strange that the race was not reported on WECT.com? It seems they are afraid of upsetting the “black” population? Racial profiling???…OMG…the facts are the facts!! Therefore the news should be the news…these were 2 black men…if anyone is to blame for what some believe is racial profiling, it is these black men who keep committing these crimes!! Get a job!! I feel for the Assistant Manager who was “at work earning his pay” who probably thought he would be shot and/or killed!!

  • Frank says:

    Thank you for reporting the race in the description. Criminals are of all races but WECTs decision not to include the race in the description of the suspects in this particular incident makes me question their reporting.

  • Joseph says:

    Most likely they were smi-automatic hand guns, if they had been BB guns, the reporter would have called them AK 47’s or AR 15’s

    They could been pellet pistols also.

  • guesty says:

    Maybe it is you that can’t read since Frank clearly stated that WECT didn’t post the race of the robbers and thanked WWAY for posting it.

  • guesty says:

    Just by you and not by Frank. His post clearly states that WECT didn’t post the race of the robbers and thanked WWAY for posting it.
