Man shows gun during Naperville Subway robbery

Updated 6/3/2014 3:04 PM

A Subway restaurant on 75th Street in Naperville was robbed at gunpoint about 10 p.m. Monday and a search is on for the suspect, authorities said Tuesday.

A man described as tall and thin wearing a black hood, a black scarf over his face and dark pants showed a gun inside the sandwich shop at 931 W. 75th St. and demanded money, authorities said.

Naperville police Sgt. Bill Davis said the man's face was difficult to see because of the scarf, but he was described as having a "lighter complexion."

He got away with an undisclosed amount of money. Davis said police are not sure in which direction he fled from the restaurant near Rickert Drive and West Street.

Police who arrived at the scene minutes after the armed robbery were not able to find the suspect, and the case remained under investigation Tuesday afternoon. Davis said this robbery is not believed to be connected to any other crimes.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at (630) 420-6666 or Crime Stoppers at (630) 420-6006 to remain anonymous.
