police

Police on Hobart's eastern shore are hunting two men after a robbery at the Howrah Pizza Hut on Sunday night.

Investigators say a coordinated response is underway after the men were seen fleeing the premises.

Around 9.15pm last night, two men entered the Pizza Hut on Clarence Street and demanded a quantity of cash from staff within the store.

The men threatened the staff with what is believed to have been a handgun and a large sharpened wooden stick.

They were both wearing dark blue hooded tops, dark coloured work pants and are both around 180 cm or 5'11.

The public is warned not to approach them. 

Sightings should be reported to police or crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.
