On 6/12/13 at about 0640 hours, the female victim was working at Subway located in the 2600 Block W. Edinger. The victim was in the store by herself when a male suspect entered the business and jumped over the counter, grabbed the victim by the arm and forced her to the floor. The suspect then dragged the victim asking her where the safe was located. The victim told the suspect she did not know where the safe was located.
The suspect retrieved a knife asking the victim, “Do you want to die?” Fearing for her life, the victim then showed the suspect where the safe was located. The suspect removed money from the safe and then forced the victim to open the cash register. The suspect jumped over the counter and left the restaurant with the money.
