A 10-year-old girl hid under a counter while a gunman and an accomplice robbed a Kenmore area pizza shop.

No one inside Talamo’s pizza on Kenmore Boulevard was injured.

The robbers entered the store about 10 p.m. Friday and confronted a worker, 30. The man told police the robber came inside, pointed a gun and demanded money. One worker fled.

The girl was inside waiting to pickup an order and her mother was outside in a car when the robbery unfolded. The child said she hid under the counter until the robbery ended. The child was upset, but otherwise not harmed, police said.

The robbers could not open the cash register and instead robbed the workers, police said.

The male worker said he gave the robber his deceased father’s wallet and a cell phone. Another worker, a man, 51, was robbed of $81. The robbers have not been identified.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Akron police at 330-375-2490.

Information may also be provided anonymously by calling Summit County Crimestoppers at 330-434-COPS(2677) or by texting TIPSCO plus the tip to 274637. Tipsters may qualify for a cash reward.
