Elyria Police converged on the Subway sanwich shop on Cleveland Street Saturday night after receiving a report that the shop has once again been held up at knife point.

Elyria Police Officers blanketed the area after receiving the call around 8:30 p.m. from the Subway employee saying that a white male in his 20’s sporting a beard with no mustache had just held him up at knife point. It was believed that the man fled the store heading west towards Winckles Street, but the clerk was not 100% sure wich direction the man went after leaving the store.

A perimiter was set up by Police Officers and Elyria’s K9, Stuka, and his handler Officer Walker responded and began tracking. A thorough search of the area turned up no suspects. Police viewed video from the store survielence camera and dusted various areas for finger prints.

The same Subway was held up at knife point last week by a man fitting the same description.

If you have any information on the Subway hold ups, please contact the Elyria Police Department at 440.323.3302.

Not that I'm an expert but if someone comes after you with a knife, think FIRE EXTINGUISHER in the face. Haas

Great idea! Now this is the 2nd time he got away, 10 to 1 the guy parks his car in the parking lot behind The Little Brown Jug and gets into his trunk hides there until the cost is cleared after he robs the place he seems to be gone like a ghost in the night.

Most cars now have a latch handle inside the trunk just incase someone locks you in your trunk just a thought, I did call the dispatcher the first time he hit and suggest they check the cars in that parking lot all I heard on the scanner was the bars where clear.
