Prince George’s County police are looking for a man who they said helped rob a Pizza Hut in Upper Marlboro on Wednesday evening.

Police received a call at around 7:45 p.m. from a Pizza Hut employee who said a man with a gun was in the restaurant on South Osborne Road, said Officer Henry Tippett, a spokesman for the Prince George’s County Police Department.

When police arrived at the restaurant, two suspects drove away in a white Ford Explorer, Tippett said.

Police arrested one of the suspects after they crashed their SUV on Frank Tippett Road, but one of the suspects escaped.

No information was available on the man who was arrested or the man who escaped, Tippett said.

Police said there were no injuries.
