Business robbed at gunpoint: Less than $500 taken from Soldotna Subway sandwich shop

Posted: Thursday, January 13, 2011

A Soldotna Subway sandwich shop was robbed early Wednesday morning.

Police said that a white adult male walked into the store at about 10:30 a.m., approached the counter, showed a concealed handgun, and demanded the female cashier hand over all the money in the register.

The cashier complied. The man left the Subway adjacent to the Peninsula Center Mall and was last seen walking through the parking lot.

According to police Sgt. Duane Kant, the only people in the building during the robbery were two female employees, aged 18 and 23. A male customer entered the store while the robber was exiting.

Kant reported that less than $500 was stolen.

The 18-year-old employee, who was standing at the opposite end of the counter as the 23-year-old cashier, said that the man was wearing a neck fleece of sorts, which he used to partially cover his face. She also said he kept his face down, and spoke quietly to her co-worker when making his demands.

The suspect was described as being in his late teens or early 20s, about 5 feet, 9 inches tall, and weighing about 150-160 pounds. Employees said the man was wearing a black baseball cap, a gray hoodie sweatshirt under a black jacket, blue jeans and tennis shoes.

Anyone with any information in this case is urged to contact the Soldotna Police Department at 262-4455 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-478-HALT.
