A man who robbed an Abbotsford pizza restaurant three times last year has pleaded guilty and has had his sentencing scheduled for October.
Kolton Klassen, 28, appeared Aug. 20 in Abbotsford provincial court to plead guilty to three counts of robbery.
Two other charges of disguising his face with the intent to commit an offence are expected to be stayed at sentencing.
Klassen was first charged with robbing D-Hut Pizza on Clearbrook Road on June 9, 2019.
Police at the time said he produced a knife, demanded and obtained cash, and then ran away.
A patrol officer who was in the area at the time was flagged down by an employee. A description of the suspect was broadcast to other officers and, within a minute, Klassen was located a block away and arrested.
He was subsequently charged with two previous robberies of the restaurant – on May 29 and June 8, 2019.
Police said those two incidents also involved a man with a knife.
Klassen’s sentencing hearing has been scheduled for Oct. 19 in Abbotsford provincial court.
