Stow Police say a man walked into the Fifth Third Bank at 911 Graham Road around 12:30 on the afternoon of Saturday, July 8th. He was wearing a mask over his face and jumped the counter, demanding money from the bank tellers, or he'd shoot them. 

While police say the suspect never showed a weapon and no one was injured, the man did get away with some cash. Before leaving the bank, the man forced employees into an office and then again threatened to shoot anyone who tried to stop him from getting away. 

Anyone with information is asked to call Stow Police at 330-689-5700.

Just before 7 p.m. Sunday, Stow Police were called about the robbery of a pizza driver. 

According to the report, the driver arrived at a home on Hibbard Drive and said a man came at him with a large kitchen knife, demanding all his money. After he took the money, the suspect hopped in the driver's Hyundai Sonata and took off. 

The suspect was later identified as 45-year-old Matthew Robert Guzik (pictured) of Stow. Police caught up with him the next day, Monday, in Sagamore Hills.

The report indicates that Guzik used a fake name when placing the pizza order, but had the food delivered to his home. The driver told police that Guzik said he was robbing him because of marital problems and that he was "feeling very angry."

Guzik was being held in Summit County Jail and due for arraignment Monday.
