    By Kelly Roy King

    The Pappa John’s Pizza at 207 S. State in Orem was robbed early Sunday, Junly 3, according to Orem Police Lt. Doug Edwards.

    The suspect is described as a white male, six feet tall, wearing dark clothing who covered his face during the robbery.

    The employee heard the back door of the pizza establishment open and thought it was another employee returning a store delivery sign, Edwards said.

    The suspect opened the office door and brandished a chrome or stainless steel handgun and demanded money from the victim, Edwards said.

    Edwards said the victim gathered the money and gave it to the suspect.

    The suspect then ordered the victim to sit in a chair and was bound with duct tape around his hands and chest, Edwards said.

    The suspect fled after he hit the victim over the head with a calculator.

    The victim was able to free himself and call 911 minutes later at 3:05 a.m.

    The suspect took an undisclosed amount of money and is still at large
