AKRON -- Two men have been arrested in connection with the armed robbery of an Akron pizza shop.

Around 2:30 a.m. on August 25, police say a man entered the restaurant on North Main Street and placed money on the counter to order beer. When the worker rang up the sale, the man pulled a handgun and demanded all the money from the cash register.
