A robbery at a Domino's Pizza in Newton is currently under investigation. This morning (June 12) shortly before 1:30, the The Newton Police Department responded to Domino’s at 2392 West NC 10 Highway, in reference to an armed robbery. Upon arrival, officers were told that a delivery driver was exiting the business when he was approached by two armed suspects who forced him back inside the store.
