Spokane police are searching for an armed robber who held up two Quiznos sub shops Saturday night in a little more than a half hour.
According to news reports, officers say the man hit the Quiznos, 1601 N. Division St., at about 7:40 p.m., showing workers there a silver handgun while demanding cash. He did not get any money and drove away in a vehicle.
Police believe the man headed north and stopped to knock over a second Quiznos, 6125 N. Division St., at 8:13 p.m. A man matching the description of the first robber threatened the sandwich shop employees with a silver handgun and forced them to get on the floor while one worker opened the register. Police say he escaped in a vehicle, but did not have a description.
Witnesses gave police similar descriptions for both robberies: a white man, 5 feet 7 inches to 6 feet tall, with a thin build. He was wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, dark bandana over his face and camouflage pants.
Anyone with information about the robberies is asked to call police.
