Gunman Robs Subway, Beats Employee
It's deja-vu for the sandwhich shop: Exactly a month ago today, a Subway on Northern Lights Boulevard was robbed at gunpoint by a similar suspect.
They say lightning never strikes the same place twice, but an early morning robbery at an East Anchorage sandwich shop proved otherwise.
Shortly before 8 a.m, Anchorage police responded to reports of an armed robbery at a Subway Sandwich Shop on Northway Drive.
There was only one employee in the shop at the time of the robbery, and police say the 19-year-old girl was pistol whipped and beaten in the back of the head after the robber demanded money at gunpoint.
It's deja-vu all over again for the sandwhich shop: Exactly a month ago today, a Subway on Northern Lights Boulevard was robbed at gunpoint by a similar suspect.
"It very well could be the same person, because generally the description matches and certainly his mode of operation matches, the coming in, totally covering his face, his hair," said Anita Shell, a spokeswoman for the Anchorage Police Department. "It's not really clear whether he's a black male or a dark-skinned male, and then certainly beating his victims."
Police are asking anyone with information about the crime to call 786-8900
