    Gun held to baby's head during crime

    LOCAL 6 REPORT • July 14, 2008

    ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. -- One of several armed men who robbed a Central Florida pizza restaurant held a gun to a baby's head and threatened to pull the trigger during the crime.

    "To point a firearm at a child and an innocent child -- that's a sign of a coward," Orange County sheriff's Cmdr. Spike Hopkins said.

    Police said three men burst into the family-owned Mr. Pizza restaurant located on Winegard Road in South Orange County near the Florida Mall and demanded money late Sunday. A fourth man apparently stood guard outside the business, police said.

    As the crime happened, a woman tried to pull her baby out of a playpen at the front of the business, but one of the men pointed a gun at the baby and threatened to kill the child.

    The bandits escaped with an undisclosed amount of money. The child was not injured.

    There are no specific descriptions of the men, but detectives are checking surveillance tapes.

    "Hopefully, somebody will call Crimeline at 800-423-TIPS and help us out, especially if these are guys going around pointing guns at kids in order to facilitate the robbery," Hopkins said.

    Oh, no. I don't think I would be able to handle myself if I was there. What a big to pull that crap. Just goes to show you that BG are and then some more !!

    I hope these are found and then put in general population, then the guards need to announce it over the PA system why they are in there, and then turn around and bend down while they "tie their shoes". It would only take as long as that, done and gone!

    All he was doing was getting cash to feed his babies, surely, and yet he's prepared to destroy babies to do it. Baby killers in training. That, or he's done it before.

    Thank God no one was injured by these cowards. There is nothing lower than harming or threatning to harm a child.

    I agree fully jerm1109. I have absolutely no tolerance for those types of people. However, I believe that they will be "taken care of", one way or another.

    I know, right? Just thinking about someone intentionally endangering my 1 year old, let alone holding a gun to his head is enough to get me worked up!

    Yeah, about a million images flash through my head.... NONE OF WHICH are able to be posted on this forum.

    He'd just better hope he'd never give me one millisecond of an opportunity to act because I'd be all over him like white on rice in a glass of milk on a paper plate in a snow storm.

    I remember watching Star Trek back in the 60's. A Klingon was telling Captain Kirk that Klingons NEVER took hostages. Kirk pressed further and the Klingon just said, "Only cowards take hostages". Taking a baby as a hostage puts you lower than pond scum.
