PORT ANGELES — City police released Wednesday an image of a man suspected of robbing a Port Angeles pizza shop Monday.

The grainy image taken from surveillance video prior to the robbery shows a man sitting in a parking lot east of Papa Murphy's Take 'N' Bake Pizza at 1405 E. Front St.

Police suspect he is the man who robbed the restaurant at 2:05 p.m. The robber covered his face with a scarf and waved what police think was a replica of a gun.

Port Angeles police “would like a call” from anyone who recognizes the man, Deputy Chief Brian Smith said Wednesday.

The robber is described as a 6-foot white man in his 30s with a husky build.

He was seen wearing a camouflage baseball cap and a Hawaiian shirt with images of cars over a dark sweatshirt and dark pants.

Police believe the robber likely used a black replica handgun in the robbery.

Smith has described the replica as closely resembling a Colt model 1911 handgun.

An undisclosed amount of cash was taken from the pizza shop.

Police recovered a Hawaiian shirt matching the description at Caroline and Vine streets shortly after the robbery.

A replica gun and a scarf were found near the intersection of Sixth and Vine streets.

Officers and a police dog attempted to track the robber, but the search was called off at about 3:30 p.m.

Port Angeles police, Clallam County sheriff's deputies, Olympic Peninsula Narcotic Enforcement Team detectives, Lower Elwha Klallam tribal police, National Park Service rangers and Coast Guard crews participated in the search.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to phone police at 360-452-4545.
