A man and a boy of about 12 robbed a pizza restaurant in Placentia at gunpoint, police said Wednesday.

The robbery occurred around 11 p.m. Tuesday at a Pizza Hut in the 900 block of East Yorba Linda Boulevard, Placentia Police Lt. Eric Point said.

Point said a man armed with a black handgun jumped the front counter, grabbed a clerk and demanded cash. After taking the money, the robber ran from the restaurant, the clerk told police.

A boy of about 12 — wearing a baseball cap, sunglasses and a T-shirt with a red print — held the front door open for the robber and ran off with him, Point said.

The suspect was described as black, 6 feet 4, 180 pounds, wearing a dark baseball cap, sunglasses, a bandana across the lower part of his face, and a gray track suit.

The pair escaped with $100 in cash, Point said.
