Authorities are looking for a man who robbed a Seymour Subway restaurant, and the entire crime was caught on surveillance video.
The robbery happened Saturday, August 11, around 9:49 am at the Subway located at 10631 Chapman Hwy.
In the video, you can see the man, who is wearing a hoodie and a bandana over his face, enter the restaurant, go into the back, and threaten two employees with a gun.
"As soon as I saw when he came in the door and I saw the gun my mind pretty much just went blank and I just started backing up," said store employee Cydnee Harrell.
The suspect then cleans out the cash register and leaves.
The Sevier County Sheriff's Department describes the suspect as a white man who appeared to be in his 20's, was 5'6" to 5'9" tall with a slim build. The man was wearing a dark colored hoodie with a blue bandana covering his face. He had on denim cargo shorts and white and black quarter high top basketball type shoes. He was also wearing black gloves.
Witnesses said he possibly left in a dark colored SUV or pickup truck, which was parked behind the Subway at a doctor's office.
"It's scary. You never know if he's going to walk through the door again if he thinks he's going to do it again or wants more money," Harrell said.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Sevier County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigation Division at 865-428-1899 or the tips line at 865-453-0312.
Harrell and other Subway employees worry the incident was the work of a serial robber.
There have been several similar robberies in the same area in the past few months. The first was on May 7 at a Domino's restaurant. Then on May 17, Floyd's Market was robbed. Investigators say they have no proof at this time that the three robberies are related, but they are continuing to investigate all three incidents.
Still, Harrell and her co-workers remain on edge.
"I want him to get caught," she said. "I know the other employee does too, I mean we had a gun in our faces, we want him caught."
