OKLAHOMA CITY -- Police are searching for a masked gunman who robbed a pizza shop late Tuesday night on Oklahoma City's northwest side.

The owner of Pizza Palace, 3007 N. May Ave., said a lone robber took his money, wallet, and cell phone at gunpoint shortly before 11 p.m.

The robber locked the employees in a back office then left through the rear door.

The gunman was caught on surveillance camera and was wearing a grey hoodie and blue jeans.  

The owner, Sohan Karim, said the thief made off with $300, but said the loss was more than financial.  "The impact, I would say for myself, is more emotional than financial.  I have a chance if I work more I could get that money back in some other way, but the fear I'm having at this time and the fear my family is having is the worst thing, I guess."

Police have asked anyone with information on this robbery to call Crime Stoppers at 235-7300.
