MARLBOROUGH, Conn. (WTNH)  –  The person who held up a Marlborough pizza restaurant at gun point Tuesday night is being sought by state police.

Police say a man with a black semiautomatic handgun entered Village Green Pizza on East Hampton Road around 8:30 p.m. and ordered employees to hand over all of the money in the cash register.  The suspected said “no monkey business” and ordered employees to stay back.  The employees handed the gunman an undisclosed amount of money in a white plastic takeout bag with a yellow smiley face on it.   The suspect then fled.   No one was injured.

The suspect is described as a white male with green eyes, approximately 6 feet tall with a stocky build.   He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black sweatpants, a black neoprene facemask and black mechanic-type gloves with white writing on the back.  The vehicle the suspect fled in is described as possibly green, later model Honda or Toyota.   It was last seen heading toward Route 2.
