From Bill Kaempffer, public safety spokesman:
Detectives are seeking the public’s help in identifying an armed robber who held up a Wood Avenue restaurant Thursday evening.
The Subway sandwich shop, at 1552 Wood Ave., was held up by a white or Hispanic male at approximately 7:30 p.m. The suspect approached the counter near the cash register and began inquiring about a job. The employee behind the counter was giving the suspect information when the suspect pulled his hand out of his pocket, gesturing that he had a gun, and demanded money.
The suspect had a gray and white, non-skid sock covering his hand.
The suspect fled with a small amount of cash.
Anyone with information pertaining to this suspect is asked to contact Detective Michael Fiumidinisi at 203-581-5246.
