Erie County Detectives are still looking for an armed robbery suspect who robbed the Subway restaurant on Main Road in the Town of Newstead. 

Sheriff's dispatcher received a 9-1-1 called on Saturday just after 6:00 p.m. 

Detectives describe the suspect as a white male, in his 40-50s, about 5'8'' tall, with thinning hair and patches of dry red skin on his forehead and hairline.

Subway employees say he showed a black semi-automatic handgun, was armed with a crowbar, and demanded money. He left with an unknown amount of cash. 

Detectives believe the suspect entered a gold or tan full-size pickup truck either a regular or extended cab and headed west toward the Town of Clarence.

Anyone who recognizes the suspect or has information about the incident is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at (716) 858-2903.
