Armed Robbery Experience 'Didn't Seem Real'

Armed Robbery Experience 'Didn't Seem Real'

What happened to Miranda Flugge last Wednesday is something that she is still finding hard to comprehend. Everything happened so quickly. 

"At first, I didn't think it was real," Flugge said.

As business wrapped up for the day at a Domino's Pizza near 57th Street and Cliff Avenue, Flugge and a driver took one last order.  A call came in from a private number twice, the pizza was made and the driver was heading out the door. That's when the armed robbery began.

"As soon as he opened the door, they pushed him back, ambushed him. One had him and the other one came back," Flugge said.

Flugge was in the back room at the time and heard a scream. She then saw a man approach with a gun pointing right at her.

"It was in my face when he came back. It was a dead stare-on look right here. Not that far away. My driver had it in his back and in the back of his head," Flugge said.

Both workers were taken into the restroom where they were locked by a broom. The two men then went to the office to grab money, then the front register before leaving. It all happened in under two minutes. After police arrived, Flugge tried to call the private number but it, as well as the address, were fake. It was a set-up.

"It was, it was awful. My driver's not handling it well, I haven't been handling it well, either. I don't want to work nights. I do a lot of mornings right now," Flugge said.

Coming back to work has been a struggle, but Flugge is staying strong not only for herself, but for everyone else who is supporting her along the way.

"I love working with the public, I love working with all of my people, they're amazing. It just feels like part of me was taken that night in an awful way," Flugge said.

Officers were able to collect finger prints at the scene, which is what Flugge hopes is enough to bring this nightmare to an end.

"I just really hope they screw up here soon to be caught. No one deserves to have something like this happen to them ever," Flugge said.

The first suspect is described as a white man, 5'8" and 140 to 160 pounds. At the time of the robbery, he was wearing black pants, a black hooded sweatshirt, red bandana and gloves.

The second suspect is described as a white man, 6'0" and 175 to 180 pounds. He was wearing black pants, a grey hooded sweatshirt covered by a blue-black plaid jacket, blue bandana and gloves.

If anyone has any information, they are encouraged to call the Sioux Falls Police Department or CrimeStoppers at 605-367-7007.
