Placeholder Image

Authorities are searching for the man who robbed a Subway at gunpoint Monday night.

According to the Newton County Sheriff's Office, the man entered the Subway restaurant on Crowell Road and ordered food. However, when he was asked to pay for the sandwiches, he reportedly brandished a weapon at the two female employees and demanded money. The man made off with an undisclosed amount of cash. He fled through the back of the store.

Described as a slender, light-skinned black male in his early 20s, he was wearing sunglasses, a blue sweatshirt, blue skullcap and a blue and white scarf. He was carrying a black, semi-automatic handgun.

An attempt by deputies to track the suspect using a K-9 was unsuccessful. It is believed he may have had someone waiting for him in a vehicle outside of the restaurant.
