VIDEO: Security camera catches man stealing from Rochester pizza restaurant

(ABC 6 News) – A security camera captured a man stealing from Pasquale’s Neighborhood Pizzeria in Rochester.

The camera footage was posted on Pasquale’s Instagram page on Tuesday, July 11.

The footage shows a man steal what appears to be a tip jar from a counter in the restaurant at approximately 7:45 p.m.

“There’s people who come in that just need a slice of pizza, just need something to eat, no questions asked. And it’s just disheartening. The tip jar is not just for the people in front, it’s for everybody that works here,” said Raffaele Pepe, the general manager at Pasquale’s Pizzeria.

Pasquale’s is asking for help in identifying the man and for anyone that recognizes him, to call the Rochester Police Department.

Pasquale’s offers New York Style and other varieties of pizza. It is located at 130 5th St. SW in Rochester.
