FIRST ON WITN: Armed Robbery Reported At Washington Sweepstakes Cafe

Washington police said they are investigating a Wednesday night armed robbery at a local sweepstakes cafe.

Investigators said at 9:40 p.m. Wednesday, the Pamlico Internet Cafe was robbed. The sweepstakes business is in the same shopping plaza as the Washington Walmart store.

Police said one suspect got away with an undetermined amount of cash, though no one was injured.

Detectives are still working to determine if a gun was used in the robbery, but a female clerk told police she believed the single suspect had a weapon with him.

Officers said the business was open during the time of the robbery.

Police are now reviewing surveillance video so they can compile and release a suspect description.
