Knoxville police are looking for a man whose nerves got in the way of his attempted armed robbery of a local Subway Friday morning.
Right before 9:30 am, a man entered the Subway located at 2625 N. Broadway in North Knoxville. Employees said he ordered a sandwich, then pulled a gun as he approached the register and demanded money.
KPD says the suspect was obviously very nervous, and actually ended up running out of the store without his sandwich or the money from the register.
The suspect was described as a white male approximately 5'6" to 5'11" tall and weighing about 180 to 190 lbs. The suspect was wearing a white long sleeve t-shirt and jeans.
KPD did stop a man in a vehicle that was seen leaving the parking lot of the restaurant after the robbery. He was taken back to the restaurant to be identified by the victims, but it turned out he was not involved. The man had been paying a bill at the business next door to the subway, and just happened to leave at the same time.
Anyone with information on this incident or suspect is asked to contact the Knoxville Police Department's crime information line at 865-215-7212. Callers can remain anonymous.
