Detectives said that on September 6, 2013, at about 9:45 P.M., an unknown Black male adult entered the Domino’s Pizza, located at 12265 Scripps Poway Pkwy in Poway, and ordered a pizza.  He gave the name Javid when he placed the order. Once he got his pizza he exited the store.  About ten minutes later another Black male adult entered the same Domino’s Pizza, with a handgun, and demanded cash. 

 Detectives believe that the first male may have been casing the business. Witnesses saw him getting out of the passenger side of a highlighter yellow Chevy Impala before walking into Domino’s Pizza. He was also seen making hand signals to someone in the same car while waiting for his pizza. At one point, he actually walked out of Domino’s, went to the passenger side of the Impala and was talking with the driver.  

 Suspect #1: Black male between 19-23 years old. He is about 5’7”-5’8” tall and weighs between 165-175 lbs.  He has short brown hair.  He was described as having fuzzy sideburns and a goatee.  He looked like he worked out and was wearing a tank top and a blue baseball cap.

 Suspect #2 (armed with a handgun): Black male between 23-25 years old, weighing about 180 lbs with chubby arms and big hands.  He was wearing a gray beanie with the eye and mouth holes cut out.  The beanie was covering his face. The mouth area was stitched back up as if the suspect wanted to look like the Joker in the Batman movies.  He was wearing a cream collared shirt with a black tie, black Dickie pants and black and white Nike shoes.  He was also wearing black and white gloves. The robber had a zigzag line tattoo on each side of his neck that could be snakes of lightning bolts.

 Vehicle Description: 2006-2012, 4-door, highlighter yellow Chevy Impala with tinted windows and black 21-22” wheels. It had a silver impala emblem behind the side rear windows.
