Peabody police are searching for a suspect in the armed robbery of a Domino's Pizza shop on Andover Street Monday night.
According to a police log entry, dispatch received a transfer emergency call from state police at 10:59 p.m. with a description of a male suspect who entered the store wearing a black bandana over his face and brandishing a "large knife."
Peabody police spokesman Michael Crane said the suspect entered the restaurant through a back door and demanded money from the clerk before fleeing through the back parking lot with an undetermined amount of cash.
There was no report of a vehicle used or any witnesses other than the clerk. Domino's website lists the hours at its Peabody location as 11 a.m. to 12 a.m. on Mondays, but the police report makes no mention of any customers in the store at the time, according to Crane.
Crane was unable to say whether the store has security cameras, but if it does, it's possible that there is no usable video due to how the suspect entered the store.
"The only thing I suspect possibly is the way he came into the business, which is through the rear," Crane said. "If he was not in the customer area I don't know if that is actually recorded."
There was no report of assault or injury to the clerk.
The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 35-40 years of age, five-feet, eight-inches tall, with blond hair and green eyes. He was last seen wearing a black T-shirt, khaki shorts and sneakers.
