A Subway sandwich shop in northwest Fresno was robbed at gunpoint Friday morning.
Police spokesman Lt. Joe Gomez said detectives are searching for the robber who burst into the business along the 7000 block of North Marks Avenue around 9:15 a.m. Police described the man as white or Hispanic — his face was covered with a bandanna. He appeared to be about 5-foot-7 and 180 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black hoodie sweatshirt and dark gray basketball shorts.
He drove away from the Subway in a white, four-door Toyota, last seen traveling east on Alluvial Avenue from Marks Avenue.
The man allegedly pointed a black handgun at Subway employees and demanded cash. He left with an unknown amount of money.
