Two Subway restaurants were robbed in Pacific Beach and San Diego on Friday, according to San Diego police.

It was not yet clear whether there was any connection between the two robberies, said detectives.

A man entered the Subway sandwich shop at the 2000 block of Garnet Avenue around 9:20 a.m., said police. The suspect pointed a gun at the clerk and demanded money from the cash register.

He took an unknown amount of cash and ran away, heading west on Garnet Avenue. Police described the suspect as about 25 to 30 years old with a muscular build. He was wearing a white and black baseball cap, with a dark-colored bandana covering his face, as well as a gray Padres hoodie and dark pants.

Later, there was another robbery at a Subway sandwich shop on the 2000 block of Shelter Island Drive. It happened just before 4 p.m. in the Roseville-Fleet Ridge neighborhood of San Diego, according to police.

The man walked in with a gun in his hand and threatened a Subway employee, demanding money. The employee put cash into a bag the suspect was carrying, said police.

This incident involved a man in his late 20's or early 30's, weighing about 180 pounds. He was 5 feet 10 inches tall, wearing a light blue hoodie and jeans. Police say he wore a baseball cap on backwards with mesh and something covering his face.

San Diego Police Robbery Detectives are investigating these cases. At this point, they cannot determine whether the robberies were connected.
