VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) – Valdosta Police are searching for two dangerous young men who shot a Pizza Hut worker during a robbery Monday night.

The gunmen stormed into the Pizza Hut on Northside Drive in Valdosta a little before 11 o'clock Monday night and forced three employees to the ground.

One of the robbers punched the manager, 20-year-old Jesse Northam, in the face and hit her in the back of the head with his gun.

The men got money out of the safe and ran toward the back door. 

They came across another worker and shot him in the throat.  Valdosta Police refuse to release his name, but we were able to find out he was treated at South Georgia Medical Center and is expected to be okay.

The victims think the robbers were 17 or 18-years old.  They couldn't give good descriptions because the robbers wore masks.

If you know anything about the robbery, call Valdosta Police at (229) 293-3091.
