Gimme the dough! Armed robber demands pizza instead of cash in bizarre fast food theft

Gimme the dough! Armed robber demands pizza instead of cash in bizarre fast food theft
A drunk thief in France was after a completely different kind of ‘dough’ when he walked into a Lyon fast food outlet and forced employees to make him a pizza at gunpoint.

The fast food hold-up occurred in the Saint-Priest area of Lyon on December 23, reports Le Progrés, when a intoxicated man pulled a gun on Domino’s Pizza staff members.

However, instead of demanding cash from the register, the unidentified man threatened staff, ordering staff to prepare a pizza for him as he brandished a firearm.


After the ordeal, the man tried to make good his escape on a bicycle before he was apprehended by local police officers.

The alleged pizza raider is due to appear before a French court this week.
