Deputies need your help identifying the man who used a kitchen style knife to rob a Subway in Lockport.

Around 8:30 a.m. Monday morning, the suspect entered the Robinson Road sub shop, displayed a silver knife that may have also had a silver handle and demanded cash from the register.

The employee obliged and then was told to wait in the walk-in cooler for a period of time before leaving. The man threatened to harm her if she didn’t comply.

Prior to the robbery, the suspect was seen pacing out front of the restaurant for around a minute. Afterwards, he fled westbound on foot from the plaza.

The suspect is believed to be an adult white or Hispanic male, around 5’9” tall with a medium build and brown eyes. Anyone with information is asked to call 716-438-3393.
