The Codiac RCMP are searching for a suspect in an armed robbery that occurred at Pizza Twins on Elmwood Drive in Moncton on Tuesday night.

RCMP Staff Sgt. Maurice Comeau said in a statement that police were called to the scene at about 10:00 p.m. after a man walked into the restaurant "armed with what is believed to be a hand gun, demanded cash from the employee and then fled with an undisclosed amount of money."

The suspect is described as a Caucasian male, English-speaking, wearing a black jacket, black balaclava, black gloves and blue jeans.

Police say the suspect is approximately five-foot-eight-inches tall and weighs about 225 lbs.

Police are asking anyone who may have been in the area between 9 and 10 p.m. and saw the suspect, or anyone who may have information about this crime, to contact the police.
