Video: Gunman terrorizes same Subway twice in three days

The bald, bearded guy who's been frequenting a North Philadelphia Subway sandwich shop doesn't like to "eat fresh." Instead, he's been robbing the place at gunpoint, and police want your help to identify him.

In the first robbery, police said, the man went into the Subway at 11th Street and Girard Avenue around 9:40 p.m. Friday and pointed a gun at an employee, demanding money from the register. He fled with an unknown amount of cash, police said.

The second time around, the man revisited the same Subway at 3:30 Sunday afternoon and again held an employee at gunpoint and took cash from the register. He fled in an unknown direction.

Police described the man as bald, black and between 35 and 40 years old with a goatee. Cops released surveillance video from both robberies on Wednesday.

If you know the man or have any information about the robberies, contact police at 215-686-8477, Central Detectives at 215-686-3093, submit a tip online or text a tip to PPD TIP (773847).
