Police in Bristol Township, Pa. (Bucks County) are looking for a man who held up the Subway store in the 4000 block of Route 413 in Levittown.
KYW’s Kim Glovas reports that sergeant Chuck Barnes says the suspect entered the Subway just after 6:30 on Sunday evening and acted like he was going to buy some chips. When the clerk opened the register for change, the suspect claimed he had a gun, and started grabbing money out of the register. Barnes says at that point, another employee came up and started fighting the man.READ MORE: Triple Shooting In West Oak Lane Leaves Man Dead, 2 Women Exiting Funeral Services At Church Injured, Philadelphia Police Say
