Police responded to the Pizza Hut at 1049 W. Glebe Road at around 7:30 p.m. for a report of a stabbing in progress, according to a search warrant.
Police found a male employee with a stab wound in his upper back, and spoke with numerous witnesses. The witness said that a skinny black male walked into the restaurant and asked the employee to speak with him outside, where an argument began.

The suspect was photographed leaving the scene in a dark-colored Infiniti sedan, which has since been impounded by police, according to the warrant.
