    Police believe the man who robbed a Subway restaurant in Bridgeport Tuesday night also robbed a convenience store in Milford a short time later.

    According to police, the man pulled a large, silver revolver inside the Subway at 2835 Fairfield Avenue around 8:55 p.m. He was dressed in all black and wore a black mask, but pulled the mask down at one point, revealing his face.

    The gunman walked out of the restaurant with an undisclosed amount of money.

    Police hope a surveillance video of the robber will help someone identify him.

    Around 9:40 p.m., the same man robbed the Quick Stop Convenience store at 186 Bridgeport Avenue in Milford, according to police.

    A witness in Milford told police the man drove off in a silver or white Acura CL with blue colored LED headlights.

    Anyone with information is asked to call Bridgeport Detective Fiumidinisi at 203-581-5246 or Milford Detective Thomas Bassett at 203-783-4727.
