A Pizza Hut in South Anchorage was robbed by two masked man -- one with a handgun -- around midnight Saturday, Anchorage police said Sunday.

The restaurant, at 12870 Old Seward Highway, was closing when the two men walked in. One of the robbers went through the restaurant looking for other people while the second one threw the cash register to the floor, took the money and a deposit bag, and taped the clerk's wrists and ankles, police said.

The men left the Pizza Hut in a dark colored SUV, possibly a Jeep, with a rear-mounted spare tire. Police aren't disclosing how much cash was stolen.

Police describe the robbers as white males with thin builds about 50 to 55 years old. One was about 6 feet tall; police didn't have an height estimate on the other. Police didn't have a make or model for the handgun or descriptions of the clothing either was wearing.

Police ask anyone with information on the robbery to call 786-8900 or Crime Stoppers at 561-STOP.
