PORTLAND, Maine — Two suspects are still at large after they robbed a pizzeria late Friday, according to police.

Portland police Lt. Gary Rogers said two black men entered a Little Ceasar’s on Brighton Avenue just before 11:30 p.m. as an employee was closing for the night.

One of the suspects was wearing a hooded sweatshirt and a mask, Rogers said. The employee was punched “three to four times,” he added, while the suspects fled with cash and the evening’s receipts.

A police dog tracked the suspects as far as Westbrook but lost the scent, Rogers said.
