Pittsburgh police are investigating reports of armed robberies Tuesday night in the city's southern neighborhoods.
A man with a gun apologized to an employee at the Cogo's on Bailey Avenue in Mt. Washington when he robbed the store at about 9:50 p.m., police said.
The suspect told the employee, ‘I'm really sorry I have to do this, but I'm broke,'” police said. He fled with an undetermined amount of cash.
Two men with semi-automatic firearms stole $150 from the register of the Domino's Pizza on East Carson Street in the South Side about 1:25 a.m., police said. One of the men kicked an employee to the ground before taking the money and running out the door, police said.
Anyone with information is asked to call 911.
