Chad Brubaker said police received a 911 call just after 7 p.m. Wednesday that a robbery had occurred at the sandwich shop. "Upon arrival we were told that a white male entered the store and asked the clerk to open the cash register. The register was already opened and he reached over the counter grabbed the money and fled," Brubaker said. "The suspect acted as if he had a weapon but no weapon was seen," Brubaker said.
