Sandwich shop robbed in northwest Fort Worth

"Give me all the money or I'm going to shoot you."

That was the demand leveled late Monday at a 19-year-old employee of Subway sandwich shop in northwest Fort Worth, police said.

The incident was reported around 9:30 p.m. at the restaurant, 8401 Boat Club Road, after the worker and a fellow employee, also 19, heard a doorbell ring, said Lt. Paul Henderson, police spokesman.

The first worker went to the front of the store and shouted "Hello?" but there was no answer.

"Once near the front counter he suddenly encountered two men behind the register, one with a black hooded sweatshirt, red bandanna covering his face, and a pistol," Henderson said.

That's when the gunman demanded the money and threatened to shoot the worker.

"The stunned 19-year-old opened the register, scooped up the cash and handed it over," Henderson said. "The two suspects then left the store on foot."

No injuries were reported but the robbers got away with an undisclosed amount of cash. A surveillance camera wasn't working during the robbery, Henderson said.

Henderson said the worker described the gunman as a white male with a mustache, 17-21 years of age, 5 feet 6 and 150 pounds.

The second suspect is described as a black male, 17-21 years of age, 6 feet tall and 200 pounds. He also wore a black hooded sweatshirt, black pants, bandanna, Henderson said. That man, Henderson added, carried a red bag.

Anyone with information can call robbery detectives at 817-392-4370 or Crime Stoppers at 817-469-TIPS.
