PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh police have been looking for a remorseful robber who threatened some Pizza Hut employees while armed with a large knife.

Police have tweeted video of the suspect recorded by surveillance cameras at a nearby bank branch before the robbery Tuesday night at the Carrick Shopping Center.

Police say the robber jumped over the counter and demanded money before apologizing to the employees and running away. He got away with an undisclosed amount of money.

The video shows the man only from behind. But police say he’s a white man with blond hair and blue eyes who stands about 5-foot-9 and weighs about 170 pounds.
