A man armed with a gun robbed a Subway restaurant Tuesday night in Akron’s North Hill neighborhood.
The man had a hooded sweatshirt pulled over his head when he entered the restaurant, at 904 E. Tallmadge Ave., about 9:30 p.m. and showed workers a gun he had tucked inside his waistband.
“Don’t be stupid,” he told the workers as he ordered one to surrender the store’s cash. The man then fled with an undisclosed sum.
Police say the robber is a black male, 18 to 22 years old. He wore a black hooded sweatshirt with white stripes and black pants. He also had a tattoo or birthmark under his left eye.
