Police arrest armed suspect in Pizza Hut holdup in Roswell


Suspect nabbed minutes after crime called in


November 18, 2013
ROSWELL, Ga. The Roswell Police Department arrested a suspect in a holdup at the

Pizza Hut located at 661 Holcomb Bridge Road, Roswell.

Cordvontay Sexton, 22, from North Carolina, has been charged with armed robbery and aggravated assault.

The Roswell Police Department responded to an armed robbery call Wednesday, Nov. 13. A Pizza Hutt employee said around 11 p.m., a man walked into the restaurant and pulled out a handgun and demanded money. After the suspect took the money from the victim, he fled on foot.

The victim was able to provide a detailed description of the suspect. Roswell Police officers quickly arrived and found Sexton a short distance from the Pizza Hut at the intersection of Mansell Circle and Colonial Park Drive. When officers tried to detain the suspect, he fled on foot.

Sexton allegedly threatened the officer at one point with a gun, and the officer fired shots at the suspect. Sexton then surrendered and was taken into custody at the 500 block of Colonial Park Drive.

The officers recovered the firearm and the money taken from Pizza Hut during the robbery. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation responded to investigate the officer involved in the shooting.

Neither the police officer nor the suspect was injured. The officer will be on administrative leave during the investigation.
