Police Search for Suspect in Subway Armed Robbery in Midway District

Police searched for a man Wednesday in connection to an armed robbery at a Subway restaurant in the Midway District.

While two clerks were helping lunch-rush customers at a Subway on Sports Arena Boulevard, the suspect entered the store and sat down, according to the San Diego Police Department (SDPD).

As the crowd died down, one of the clerks walked into the back room. That’s when the suspect approached the register, SDPD said.

The suspect gave the cashier a demand note and exposed the butt of a small handgun, according to police.

The suspect also showed off a hunting knife with a black handle.

The other clerk reemerged and opened the register, SDPD said. It’s unclear how much money the suspect took at this time.

Police described the suspect as a man in his mid-50s, weighing about 160 pounds, and standing at about 5 feet 10 inches tall.

The suspect was last seen wearing a black zip-up sweater, a grey hoodie, black pants, and a grey baseball hat.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
