View Map

Within 40 minutes, two Subway restaurants in Colorado Springs were robbed.

In both cases, the suspect was armed, but police have not said if there was any other connection. The suspect descriptions are not similar.

The first robbery happened just after 8 p.m. Monday at the Subway on 116 E. Fillmore. The suspect reportedly walked in, revealed his gun to the employees and demanded cash. After he got what he came for, the suspect fled the area, leaving the employees uninjured.

The suspect in that robbery is described as being 5-foot-5 and thin. His face was concealed by a mask, so employees were unable to determine his race and age. Police say he was last seen heading west from the restaurant.

The second robbery was reported at 8:46 p.m. at the Subway on 3434 N. Academy. Similar to the earlier robbery, the suspect walked in, showed off his gun and demanded money. He left after the employees gave him money. No one was hurt.

The suspect in the second robbery is described as a white male in his mid 20s, 6-foot-1 and 170 pounds. He was wearing a dark-colored hoodie, jeans and dark-colored shoes.

If you have information on either robbery, call the Colorado Springs Police Department at 444-7000 or Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.
