Tulsa police arrested a 23-year-old man around 12:30 a.m. Saturday after they said he walked into a Domino's Pizza store, implied he had a gun and demanded a pizza.

Police said Earl Julien walked into the restaurant at 16 West 4th Street wearing a blanket and demanded pizza from the employees. The employees said the man's face was mostly covered by the blanket and he had his hands under the blanket, implying he had a gun.

An employee inside the store called police to report the robbery and an officer was at the location by the time the call was dispatched.

When the officer arrived, Julien was standing in the doorway of the store, police said. The officer ordered Julien to put his hands up and he complied and was taken into custody.

Police said no gun was located at the scene. 

Julien was booked on complaints of felony first-degree robbery and an outstanding traffic warrant. 

No employees were injured during the incident, police said. 

Julien is being held on a $100,000 bond, jail records show. He's due in court April 28.
