The West Seneca Detective Bureau is investigating two armed robberies at the Subway shop on Ridge Road in West Seneca and another at a Subway shop in Cheektowaga.

Detectives say the suspect was wearing a gray hoodie, aviator style sunglasses with blue lenses, and blue jeans when he entered the Ridge Road location. The suspect then approached the clerk, apologized, and then lifted his hoodie to reveal a black handgun in his waistband.

The suspect demanded cash from the clerk and then fled the scene in a dark Ford Explorer.

Anyone with information on the suspect can contact the West Seneca Police Detective Bureau at 674-3154 or the confidential Tip Line at 675-8423.
