NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — The Subway restaurant chain has been the recent target of a serial robber, who is believed to be responsible for possibly four holdups throughout New Orleans.
The first robbery happened on January 11, at a Subway at 2700 South Claiborne Avenue. The suspect entered the restaurant around 9 p.m. and demanded money from the register while implying he had a gun. The suspect made off with a clear plastic “Subway” bag, filled with cash from the register.
A day later, a man robbed a Subway at 1601 Franklin Avenue in St. Claude the same way. He entered the restaurant around 9 p.m., demanded money, implied he had a gun, and fled with a plastic bag.
On January 13, a Subway restaurant at 1153 North Broad Street was robbed in a similar matter, this time the suspect entered the restaurant around 7:30 p.m.
On January 15, police believe the suspect robbed the Subway he targeted two days prior. But this time he entered at his usual time of 9 p.m.
The suspect was described as a black male, 35 to 45 years of age, approximately 6’ tall, and having a medium build.
The suspect was captured on surveillance video for all four robberies. The NOPD is actively searching for any information that could lead to the suspect’s arrest. Anyone with information that can help solve this crime is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 822-1111 or toll-free 1-877-903-STOP.
