WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Police say employees stopped a couple of would-be robbers before they were able to hit a Wilmington Pizza Hut for the second time in less than two months.

Around 1 a.m. Tuesday morning, police say workers at the Oleander Drive location were out back closing the store when two black men in black clothing with black bandannas covering their faces began walking towards the building.

That’s when they say one of the employees yelled for the men, one with a gun, to stop. Police say the employees then ran back inside through the back door and locked it behind them. The two masked men took off running.

Police say witnesses told them they noticed a vehicle driving away from the scene on 41st Street at high speeds. They say the two passengers in the large, silver sedan matched the description of the would-be robbers.

Reporting the race of these thugs. Neither the Red Star nor WECT reports the race any longer. Instead of being having the safety of the public first and foremost, these “news” organizations would rather be politically correct.

whether an employee of the Red Star News or WECT were robbed, would they give an accurate description of the suspect’s color. Bet they wouldn’t hesitate.

…due to racial profiling, remember?

Features: color, build, hair, eye color.

“A dark, tanned Caucasian with hazel eyes, curly dark blonde straight hair. Strong build, pot belly, skinny legs, runs fast, stumbles a lot and smells funny…”

We’re adopting the Chinese ID method.

Taxpayer – we only report what the Wilmington Police Department tells us.
