Armed robbery at Toppers in Madison

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- The Madison Police Department is looking for two suspects after they robbed a Toppers on Mineral Point Rd. Tuesday night.

According to their press release, officers were called to Toppers Pizza around 11:44 p.m. for an armed robbery.  Two robbers showed up armed with a handgun and a can of "Bear mace."  They demanded cash and then told everyone inside to get in a walk-in freezer.  Once they got their money, they ran away.  Customers and employees waited in the freezer for a few minutes to make sure the robbers had left.

No one was injured during the incident.  A police dog was brought in to track suspects, but they were not found.

Police are looking for a white man around 5 feet 9 inches tall.  He was wearing a gray hoodie and a green vest.  He was the one with the silver handgun.  The other suspect is a black man around 6 feet tall.  He was wearing a blue hat, a black vest, and a blue backpack.

Police say the district will look into whether this robbery has any connection with robberies earlier this month when suspects used a chemical irritant.

If anyone has any information about this or other incidents, they are urged to call the Madison Police Department or Crime
