A mother-daughter meal was interrupted by robbery in Exton yesterday, police said.

West Whiteland Police said a woman and her 9-year-old daughter were eating at the Subway restaurant in the Whiteland Towne Center at approximately 6:15 p.m. when a man approached and demanded the mother’s purse. When she refused to release it, the man produced a handgun, which he stuck against her body. The woman turned over the handbag, and the suspect fled, police said.

He is described as a white male between 30 to 40 years old, approximately 5-foot-8 and 175 pounds. He was last seen wearing dark pants and a dark hooded sweatshirt. Anyone with information on the incident or the suspect is asked to contact the West Whiteland Township Police Department at (610)363-0200 or (610) 692-5100.
