COLUMBIA — Two armed robberies occurred over the weekend and are unresolved, police said.

At 11:11 p.m. on Friday, two men entered the Domino's Pizza on I-70 Drive Southwest with a handgun and demanded money from the cash register, Columbia Police Sgt. Don Hawkins said. He said after taking the money, the men ran around the back of the building.

The only people present at the time of the robbery were Domino's employees. No one was injured, Hawkins said.

At 1:09 a.m. on Sunday, a man was approached on Ripley Street by two men, both armed with handguns, Hawkins said.

The man told police they took his wallet and backpack and then struck him over the head with a gun. The assailants fled when anotherman shouted from across the street, Hawkins said. The victim refused medical attention.

The assailants in the second robbery were described as:

  • A 21- to 22-year-old black man, 150 to 160 pounds, 5 feet 10 inches tall with dreadlocks
  • A 21- to 25-year-old black man, 200 to 230 pounds, 6 feet tall with short hair
