Westfield Police responded to an armed robbery at the Domino's Pizza, located at 711 E Main Street. A black male, described as late teens to early 20s, approximately 5'7" to 5'9" and 140-160 pounds, entered the store with a dark colored, semi-automatic hand-gun. The male was wearing a dark gray hooded sweatshirt with "Indiana" in red lettering, light gray sweatpants, black bandana type covering over his face, and black and white tennis shoes. Inside the store, the suspect confronted the employees and stole an undisclosed amount of cash from the register before fleeing. The suspect was last ob-served running westbound on foot. A K-9 track led west from the business, but ended a short distance away. It is believed that the suspect left the area in a waiting vehicle.
