Olympia police are asking the public to help identify a man who robbed a Papa Murphy’s pizza business earlier this month.

The suspect is described as 5-foot-11 with a medium build. He was last seen wearing jeans, a mask, a puffy tan jacket and black gloves with white lettering on the back. He also was wearing red, black and white tennis shoes.

About 9 p.m. Feb. 1, the man entered the Papa Murphy’s in Olympia and pulled out a revolver, demanding money from the cash register and safe. After employees explained they don’t have access to the safe, the suspect took their cell phones.

Anyone with information is asked to call Olympia Police Department detectives at 360-753-8300.
