D.C. Restaurant Robbery Video Shows Dining Customers Robbed At Gunpoint In Logan Circle (UPDATED)

Update, June 10, 2013: A man has been arrested in connection with the Logan Circle restaurant robbery.

James Edward Wade, 30, of D.C. was arrested Sunday in connection with the robbery, according to CBS DC and the AP. Police said they received numerous tips after MPD uploaded a video of the robbery on YouTube.

WASHINGTON -- The idea of being robbed while you're enjoying a meal at a restaurant is a scary one.

And that's exactly what happened to two customers dining at Pizzoli's Pizza in the Logan Circle area in May.

Luckily, a surveillance camera caught the whole thing on tape.

Watch the video above.

You can see two people eating on the patio outside Pizzoli's when a man approaches them. The customers then take out items from their pockets and hand them over to the man, who can be seen brandishing a gun.

"It's just a weird thing," Pizzoli's manager Jose Blanco told The Huffington Post.

Currently, Blanco says, the police don't have any leads.

The Washington Post reports that police say the robber made off with about $220 in cash, after telling the diners, “Give me your wallet, your cell phone, give me what you got.”
