Armed man robs Subway employee

Staff Report
A man with a gun robbed an employee at the Subway Restaurant on Jake Alexander Boulevard Saturday.
According to a Salisbury Police Department report, two employees were closing the business when one employee went to take the trash out.
As the employee was about to come back inside, a black man with a semi-automatic pistol wearing a cloth face mask, a black shirt and blue jeans told him to get in the freezer.
The employee did as the robber instructed. He told police he called 911 from the freezer.
The female employee working in the store noticed her co-worker’s absence and went to look for him. She found him in the freezer, and he told her the store had been robbed.
The suspect took the employee’s wallet and other personal belongings.
Police haven’t made any arrests, and the investigation is ongoing.
The Subway employee described the man as about 5 feet 10 inches tall with a slim build.
