Employees said a man entered the sandwich shop at 3557 State Highway 6 at 10:45pm, pointed a pistol at them and directed them to kneel down with their hands behind their heads. A second man then entered the shop and pulled a gun.
The men demanded money from a safe, but the employees did not have the combination. Both employees were placed in a walk-in cooler and told to remain there for several minutes, according to police.
The two suspects were gone when the employees exited the cooler, so they locked the door and called police. A small amount of cash was missing from the register. The employees were not injured, and there were no customers in the restaurant.
Both suspects were black and wearing dark, long-sleeved shirts and pants, police say. The first man who entered the Subway was 40-45 years old, 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet 3 inches tall and about 220 pounds. He had light skin, short black hair and was wearing glasses and a dirty cap with a kangaroo emblem. The second suspect was younger and slightly shorter than the first suspect.
Anyone with information should call the Sugar Land Police Department at 281-275-2540 or Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers at 281-342-TIPS (8477).
