SUBWAY HELD UP AGAIN
BY A MAN WIELDING A KNIFEElyria 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.
