Police were searching for a man and a woman who allegedly robbed a Little Caesar's Pizza in Phoenix, according to a news release.

The robbery occurred March 1 in the 2400 block of E. Baseline Road when the two suspects walked into the business after all of the customers left, according to a news release from Silent Witness.
