Woodbury police investigating another Subway robbery
Woodbury police are investigating whether two recent armed robberies at local Subway restaurants may be related.
The most recent holdup occurred Friday, Jan. 25 at the Subway at City Centre (near Radio Drive).
The incident was reported shortly before 11 p.m. after two suspects entered the store as two employees were closing for the night.
Upon entering the restaurant one of the suspects displayed a semi-automatic handgun and the other displayed a knife.
One of the suspects led one of the employees to the backroom of the restaurant while the other kept one of the employees at the front of the store.
The suspects, described as black males, left the store with almost $900 in cash, said Woodbury police Capt. Kris Mienert.
The incident was captured on the restaurant security cameras and Woodbury police made screen shots of the video available.
The most recent incident comes just three weeks after the Jan. 3 armed robbery of the Subway at the Valley Creek Mall Subway, west of I-494.
"They seem to be both very similar cases," said Mienert.
In the Jan. 3 incident, two black males entered the store and made off with cash after displaying a handgun and a knife. The robbery occurred shortly before closing time.
Woodbury police are asking anyone with information on either incident call the Woodbury Public Safety Department at: 651-714-3600.
