SPARTANBURG, S.C. -

Spartanburg County deputies arrived at a reported robbery early Wednesday morning at Domino's Pizza on Reidville Road.

Two workers told deputies they were closed and cleaning the store when a man came inside, hopped over the counter and asked for money.

Workers say they threw pizza pans at the man, who was dressed in a hood and had a white bandana over his face.

The suspect pulled a handgun and the employees then opened the safe, according to the incident report.

The man then demanded the employees cell phones and locked them in the freezer.

The workers had to kick their way out of the freezer as the suspect ran away on foot, according to the report.

If you have any information on this case call the Sheriff's office.

This incident involves similar armed robberies at closing time at other area restaurants.

The Sheriff's Office urges workers to stay alert when cleaning up at the end of the door and to keep the doors locked.
