Corbin police have identified a Tennessee man who’s wanted for robbing a restaurant on the south end of town Wednesday night.

Thursday afternoon, Maj. Rob Jones of the Corbin Police Department said they received several tips from the public through the department’s “tip line.”

All of them identified Charles V. Gray, 43, of Collierville, Tenn. (located southeast of Memphis in the western part of the state), as the alleged suspect in robbing the Subway restaurant inside the Forest Hills Shopping Center, at 1019 Cumberland Falls Highway.

Jones added Gray remains at large and that police believe he’s traveling to the Memphis area.

Police also were in the process Thursday of securing an arrest warrant through Whitley District Court. When Gray is apprehended, Corbin police will charge him with 1st degree robbery.

The holdup happened Wednesday at 10:08 p.m.

According to Jones, Gray was wearing a black jacket, black toboggan and blue jeans when he walked into the restaurant. The man took out a handgun from the inside of his pants, and demanded all the money in the cash register. The robber then left the restaurant in what may have been a 2000 silver Ford Taurus automobile.

Along with a picture of the suspect from a surveillance camera at the time of the robbery, and a description of what he was wearing Wednesday night, police said the suspect is a white male, approximately 5 feet 8 inches to 6 inches tall, and weighs around 150-170 pounds.

Maj. Jones, Det. Rusty Hedrick, Sgt. Rick Baker and Patrolman Wade Mitchell were the assisting officers at the scene, with Det. Bill Rose continuing the investigation
