Armed man robs Subway

Corbin Police searching for suspect

CORBIN — By Michele Baker / Staff Writer

An armed robber held up a Corbin sandwich shop Tuesday and got away with a little over $300, according to Corbin Police Department Major Rob Jones.

Jones said the suspect entered the Subway on Cumberland Falls Highway about 8:45 p.m. armed with a small revolver. He walked up to the counter with a note demanding money.

The shop’s employee, who asked not be named, said the man handed her a note that read, “This is a robbery. I want all the money.”

The employee said she was extremely scared and started to open the register. It took a moment to get the register open and the man got agitated and pointed the gun at her.

“He shook the gun and told me he would kill me,” the employee said.

The employee said she got the drawer open and handed the man all of the money. Jones said the suspect then fled in an unknown vehicle and appeared to turn south on U.S. 25W.

Jones said police are searching for a 20- to 30-year-old white male, approximately six feet tall with a slender build. The suspect has blue eyes and was wearing glasses. He was wearing a camouflaged jacket with the hood pulled over his head, said Jones.

Jones said police think the suspect may have exited off I-75, robbed the restaurant and quickly fled the scene. Jones added the Subway manager will bring in a copy of the shop’s surveillance video to aid police in identifying the suspect.

Anyone with information about the suspect or the robbery is asked to contact Detective Sgt. Bill Rose at 528-1122.

Assisting at the scene were Sgt. Rob Hodge, Patrolman Steve Meadors and Patrolman John Hill.
