State police are looking for the man who robbed a Subway sandwich shop in Marlborough at knifepoint yesterday afternoon.
The armed robbery happened at the sandwich shop located at 1 South Main Street and state police received a 911 call reporting it just before 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
The cash register was opened when a man with a knife came in through the back door, pushed the cashier and store manager out of the way, brandished a knife and stole $60 from the register, police said.
The store manager struggled with the man, who ran out the back door and to a vehicle that was parked near an adjacent business.
Police said the store manager chased after him, but the robber managed to get away in an older four-door gold or rust-colored sedan.
Witnesses said the license plate had black letters and numbers on a white background and the partial registration was EL942 or IE942, police said.
One witness said the vehicle had a loud exhaust and was headed east on Route 66.
Police found the knife where the man’s vehicle was parked.
The Eastern District Major Crime Squad is investigating and anyone with information is asked to call Detective Sean Velazquez at 860-465-5456.
No one was injured during the robbery. Police said the robber was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and a red scarf over his face.
