Sandwich shop robbed in north Fort Worth

FORT WORTH -- A Subway restaurant was robbed late Wednesday in north Fort Worth, police said.

A man at 10:25 p.m. came to the back of the sandwich restaurant, at 3529 Heritage Trace Parkway, and approached two teenage employees who were outside taking a break, said Lt. Paul Henderson, police spokesman.

The man asked the workers "if they smoked weed" and then pulled out a pistol and ordered them back inside the restaurant, Henderson said.

"Once inside the gun-wielding bandit demanded money," Henderson said. "One of the employees opened the cash register and a small safe."

The man took the money and left through the back door, Henderson said.

"The two teens were not injured," he said.

The robbery was caught on video surveillance cameras, Henderson said. Images from the heist might be made available to the media, but that would be a decision for robbery detectives, he said.

The man was described as 6-feet tall, black, and wearing blue jeans, a dark hooded sweater with a black cap, and a gray bandanna.
