Boystown-Area Pizza Hut Robbed Tuesday Afternoon

An attempt to pass a fake $20 bill escalated into a robbery this afternoon at a Boystown-area Pizza Hut, police said.


Two men entered the restaurant at 3009 North Clark shortly before 2 p.m. and tried to pay for a food order with a bogus bill, police said.

When an employee called them out on the fake currency, the situation escalated, and the men robbed the store of about $60, police said.

The offenders are described as black men between 18- and 20-years-old. One had low-hanging pants and the other was wearing gray pants and had a gray hoodie over his face.

They were last seen heading northbound on Clark Street with two pizzas and a Pizza Hut bag.
