A masked man robbed a May­fair Pizza Hut at gun­point shortly after 10 p.m. on Aug. 20.

Po­lice have re­leased sur­veil­lance video of the hold-up, which oc­curred at 6614 Frank­ford Ave. The rob­ber entered the res­taur­ant, ap­proached the cash­ier’s counter and poin­ted a hand­gun at an em­ploy­ee while de­mand­ing money, po­lice said. As the cash­ier began re­mov­ing bills from the re­gister draw­er, the rob­ber “racked” the slide mech­an­ism on the weapon and de­man­ded that the em­ploy­ee, “Hurry up.” The ban­dit ob­tained $162 and was last seen flee­ing east­bound on Wells Street to­ward Charles Street.

The rob­ber was de­scribed as white, 6 feet 1 inch tall and stocky. He wore a blue long-sleeve shirt, dark jeans, a dark bandana over his face, a blue base­ball cap and dark shoes.
