CARY – Police are searching for a middle-aged man who robbed a Subway restaurant along Route 14 in Cary early Tuesday evening and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police responded at 4:48 p.m. to a report of an armed robbery at the Subway, 658 W. Route 14. The man approached the counter, implied he had a gun and demanded money from the register, Cary police Sgt. Scott Naydenoff said.

He then fled southbound from the business on foot with an undisclosed amount of money, Naydenoff said. No one was injured. The man is believed to be 45 to 55 years old, 6 feet tall and weighing 200 pounds with a gray beard, Naydenoff said. He was wearing black pants, a gray San Jose Sharks jacket, a red baseball-style hat and blue latex gloves.

Police believe the man may be responsible for similar burglaries in the Kane County area. Police are asking anyone with information to call Cary investigators at 847-639-2341 or Cary-Grove Crime Stoppers at 800-762-7867.
