PORTLAND — Portland police are investigating a robbery at the Little Ceasars pizza shop at 1080 Brighton Ave.

The robbery occurred Friday at 11:26 p.m. as an employee was closing up. Two men, one wearing a mask and the other a hooded sweatshirt, confronted the male worker. One of them punched him in the face and then the two ran off with a money bag and the night’s receipts, police said.

A police dog tracked the pair to the area of Blue Rock Industries in Westbrook but lost the scent, police said. The investigation is continuing.
