Akron police are investigating the Sunday morning robbery of Emidio’s Pizza.

Workers say around 2:30 a.m. a man walked into the business at 636 North Main Street and put money on the counter to purchase beer.

As a worker rang up the sale, authorities say, the man pulled out a gun and demanded money.

After the employee ran, the suspect jumped the counter and took cash.

Responding officers arrested George W. Beeler, 40, and Diamond D. Smith, 43, on Schiller Avenue. Both were charged with aggravated robbery.

Officers recovered more than $700 in cash.
