    Police are investigating a robbery at the Subway in Vernon.

    A man robbed a Subway restaurant in Vernon at knifepoint on Wednesday night and police have released surveillance photos in hopes someone will know who he is.

    Police received a 911 call from a worker at the Subway Restaurant at 53 Hartford Turnpike around 9:30 p.m. reporting an armed robbery and police rushed to the scene.

    Authorities said the robber confronted one of the restaurant workers, demanded money and stole some out of the cash register.

    Once he had the cash, the robber ran from the store and fled in a silver or gray vehicle.

    He was skinny and wearing blue jeans as well as a white hooded sweatshirt with black cursive writing across the chest.

    Police said no one was injured in the robbery.

    Anyone with information is urged to call Vernon Detectives at 860-872-9126 and use extension 7301 for the anonymous crime tip hotline.
